Martin Demichelis made his first appearance in a City shirt for Patrick Vieira’s Elite Development Squad on Wednesday night.
The 32-year old enjoyed a winning start to life at City, helping the Sky Blues to a 4-2 penalty shootout win over Rochdale after a 2-2 draw in the opening Group 1 match.
In normal time, a brace from Jordy Hiwula bookended two goals in five minutes from the visitors, meaning that the match went straight to penalties.
This Manchester Senior Cup encounter against Rochdale offered Demichelis his first taste of football since he arrived on English shores at the end of the summer transfer window.Read full match report
