Adebayo Akinfenwa: “We [Wycombe] wanted anyone but ManCity [in the Carabao Cup]! Everyone knows we’ll do a lot of running, but when you play lower leagues, you want to pit your wits against the biggest clubs, and there’s no doubt ManCity are one of the biggest in the world…
When the draw was made it was, ‘yeah! ManCity at the Etihad!’ then the realisation quickly sank in and it was, ‘boy, we may not see the ball much!’. We’re going to just try and enjoy as best we can and hopefully spring one or two surprises.
I was invited to ManCity vs RB Leipzig and experienced one of your boxes – the chicken wings weren’t the greatest, just putting that out there! I know Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish and Phil Foden – I’ve met them at a few events and we’ve kept in touch…
I’m a Liverpool fan, but I’m always happy when those boys do well. You want to see great football and salute great players and the only time I don’t want ManCity to win is when they play Liverpool. The truth is, you want to play against the best…
I was watching the game and doing some research as well, saying ‘we can get at #ManCity this way or that way’ and then watched as ManCity scored six. We [Wycombe] won’t sit back and we’ll put our best foot forward and give it a good go…
I’ve never played vs ManCity so I’m really looking forward to it. This is my final chapter, so to be up against Guardiola, one of the best in the business, is fantastic. And it doesn’t matter what ManCity team we play, we know it’s going to be special…
So I’m sure myself and the lads will really enjoy it. We are fans before the game, then during the 90 minutes, ManCity are our opponents, then after the game we are fans again.”
Legend 🐐 good luck tomorrow @realakinfenwa 😎🔵
