City on Lopes:

Recognised as one of the continent’s most promising playmakers, Marcos “Rony” Lopes is the youngest goalscorer in the club history…

Brought on as an 89th minute substitute in City’s FA Cup third round tie against Watford in January 2013, the 17-year old (plus eight days) tyro netted in injury time to write his name into the history books.

Signed from Benfica in 2011, Lopes arrived in Manchester with a reputation as a fleet-footed technician with the ability to play anywhere across the line behind a main striker with a wise head on young shoulders.

Although he had to wait two years to make his City first-team debut, Lopes was taken on the pre-season tour to Austria in 2012 where he caught the eye and marked himself out as “one to watch” in the youth set up.

He claimed the inaugural Academy Player of the Year award in 2013 and it got even better in the 2013/14 season where Lopes was one of the stars of the UEFA Youth League, scoring a hat-trick in a 6-0 win over Bayern Munich u19s.

It wasn’t long until he was back in the first-team, earning his first start in the Capital One Cup third round tie against Wigan Athletic in September 2013.

He started again in the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg win over West Ham, earning the Man of the Match award after a sublime performance.

After landing his first senior medal in that competition, Marcos joined Lille on loan for the 2014/15 season in the summer of 2014.

He continued to shine in what was his first taste of regular senior football, making 27 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit as they finished in eighth place.
