Julian Alvarez stuns fans as Manchester City striker provides first ‘sitdown’ interview in English since joining the club



| Last Updated:


Manchester City fans have been left in awe of striker Julian Alvarez, after the Argentine showcased his excellent English speaking abilities in a new sitdown interview.

The 24-year-old reached an agreement over a move into the European game in January 2022, before finalising and making his trip to Manchester City in the following summer ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

In his first season working under Pep Guardiola, Julian Alvarez made the ultimate football history by completing a Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League Treble, to follow on from his outstanding FIFA World Cup win with Argentina in the winter of 2022.

However, whilst attentions were firmly focussed on his remarkable on-field achievements, Julian Alvarez was also completing side quests as his integration into English and European lifestyle and culture centred around the learning and speaking of a new language.

Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports News ahead of Manchester City’s return to Premier League action this week, Julian Alvarez offered his take on the ongoing top-flight title race in his first sitdown interview in English since joining the Etihad club.

“Last season we fought against Arsenal, this season it’s against Arsenal again and Liverpool – they are big teams, strong teams with great players,” Alvarez explained. “But I think if we are able to win our games, we will be Champions.”

He continued, “It’s hard – it’s Champions League, always you want to win. But we have to be strong, we have the chance to be Champions again, to win the Premier League and FA Cup. We have to try to win every game, and we can be Champions again.”

Manchester City fans reacting to the landmark moment for Julian Alvarez have reacted by pointing out a notable piece of information concerning their last Argentine striker in Sergio Aguero.

One user on X humorously explained, “(Sergio) Aguero spent almost 10 years in England and all he could say in English is “Different Gravy” and that was enough for us,” while another user said, “Still sounds more English than Steve McClaren did in that Dutch interview.”

Having checked off the elusive English interview, Julian Alvarez will now be entirely focussed on the final seven games of Manchester City’s season, as the club look to complete a historic back-to-back domestic double through the Premier League and FA Cup.
