Garrido considers his future

13 Feb 2009 - 15:44:29

Defender Javier Garrido has admitted he may be forced to consider his future at Manchester City.

The Spanish full-back had dropped down the pecking order following the January arrival of Wayne Bridge and has admitted he faces a major challenge to win back his starting place.

Garrido joined City from Spanish side Real Sociedad 18 months ago.

"Like every player I want to play. I am also conscious that they have bought a left-back in the winter transfer window who is an international and that does not help me, but I can only continue to train and hope that I have a chance," he said.

"When a player signs in the same position as you it is never good, but it just means I must be more competitive.

"The aim of the club is to create a stronger squad and for that you need two players in every position.

"I have had a meeting with the manager and he has given me confidence despite the arrival of Bridge.

"I cannot say that I would go back to Spain. In football anything can happen, but I have two-and-a-half-years more on my contract here and in general I am quite happy.

"I have learnt a new language and discovered a different culture and that has been important.

"Everyone here wants to play more so in the summer we shall see. Of course, I could go back."
