Mary Fowler is the latest guest on the Official Man City Podcast!

The Australian forward joins hosts Paul Dickov and George Kelsey to discuss her life on and off the pitch in Manchester. Since joining City in the summer of 2022 from French side Montpellier, Fowler has shown her promise in a number of positions across the front line and in midfield. Still just 21, the creative talent has already played 46 times for Australia including last summer's run to the World Cup quarter-final. Now she's competing for a place in Gareth Taylor's side as we compete on three fronts domestically, with trophies still up for grabs in the Barclays Women's Super League, FA Cup and Continental Cup. After the likes of Jill Roord, Bunny Shaw and Steph Houghton, Fowler is the latest member of our women's team to star on the podcast. Learn more about your ad choices.

This is the one we’ve all been waiting for – an in-depth official podcast episode with star striker Erling Haaland. Haaland has been a revelation since joining the Club at the start of the 2022/23 season, a campaign like no other in City history as we won the Treble. The fab forward was a driving force in these remarkable achievements, as he smashed a host of individual records. He scored the most Premier League goals in one season with 36 and the most goals in all competitions by a player at a Premier League club with a whopping 52. He won the Premier League Golden Boot, City's first European Golden Shoe, Premier League Player of the Season, Premier League Young Player of the Season, FWA Men’s Footballer of the Year, UEFA Men’s Player of the Year, the Ballon d’Or Gerd Muller Trophy as well as finishing runner-up in the main Ballon d’Or competition. Despite missing five games so far in the Premier League across 2023/24 through injury, he still sits as No.1 in the scoring charts with 14 goals, alongside Liverpool Mo Salah. In this fascinating podcast, he chats with hosts Rob Pollard and Nedum Onuoha about his initial hopes on joining City, his impressions of the dressing room atmosphere, his thoughts on the Premier League, his debut season and the personal pressure he felt on arriving at the Etihad. He also discusses our ‘unreal’ Treble, how he thinks he can improve, his belief in Pep Guardiola, his insistence on football as a team sport, the influence of his dad Alfie, his diet and his aspirations with Norway.

City and Portugal defender Ruben Dias is the latest guest on the Official Man City podcast. A rock at the back for City since arriving in 2020, Dias has been integral to the most successful period in the Club's history. Dias has won all three Premier League titles he has competed for as well as an FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Champions League. The centre back particularly made an impact in his first campaign, winning the Club's Player of the Year trophy and the Premier League Player of the Season and FWA Footballer of the Year awards. Since then he has gone on to become one of the Club's five captains and a leader on and off the pitch whether wearing the armband or not. His role in last season's Treble could not be overstated, with Dias striking up a perfect partnership with John Stones and adapting to covering as Stones stepped into midfield. Dias has now played 156 times for City and is widely regarded as one of the best defenders in our history. In this podcast, he chats with hosts Rob Pollard and Nedum Onuoha on his route into football, competing with his brother, taking on his dad’s advice and how he became the player we know today.

City and Jamaica striker Bunny Shaw is the latest guest on the Official Man City Podcast. Since joining City in 2021, the 26-year-old has netted an incredible 38 goals in 48 appearances in the Barclays Women's Super League. Leading the line with physicality and composure in equal measure, Shaw has become a star of Gareth Taylor's side. Her incredible output was recognised earlier this year when she was nominated for the 2023 Women's Ballon d'Or award. She is also an icon in her home country, helping the Reggae Girlz to the knockout stages of last summer's World Cup. Despite her obvious talents, Shaw wasn't always destined for professional sport. In this episode she discusses how she was discouraged from playing football as a young girl and the moment her mum realised her daughter's potential. Speaking with hosts George Kelsey and Paul Dickov, Shaw also reflects on her time in the US and how her game has developed since arriving in Manchester. Learn more about your ad choices.

Phil Foden says he can only ever see himself playing for City. The boyhood Blue, former Etihad ball-boy and Academy graduate revealed his dream of being a one-club player in the latest episode of the official Man City Podcast, ‘In Conversation With…’ Asked whether he’d ever considered playing anywhere else or even going out on loan when he was younger, Foden said: “No, honestly. I just always see myself as a City player. “I always just thought if I work hard enough and I know what my ability is about, I can push in the team and over time I started getting more minutes and now I'm probably getting the most minutes I've had this year “So yeah, I've worked really hard for it and it's thanks to the manager also for trusting me, so I have to thank the manager for that for trusting me and keeping me around.” The Academy pin-up boy, Foden is an inspiration for the youngsters coming through the ranks. And after watching three more graduates – Micah Hamilton, Oscar Bobb and Rico Lewis - star in  the 3-2 win over Red Star Belgrade – he says nothing makes him happier than seeing others follow in his footsteps.

Nathan Ake is the latest guest on the Official Man City Podcast. The Dutch international joined the Club in 2020 from Bournemouth and, over the following three years, has become a key figure in Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering side. His versatility, consistency and intelligence have been of immense value to a City side consistently challenging on multiple fronts, with Ake often called upon to play in a number of defensive roles. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing for the Dutch international though, and he discusses the important words of encouragement he received from Pep Guardiola after an injury-hit first season at the Etihad in 2020/21. The defender has more than repaid the manager’s faith during his time at the Club and played the full 90 minutes in our historic Champions League triumph over Inter in June. Unsurprisingly, the podcast also involves plenty of discussions around that momentous occasion, including the preparations for the game and the celebrations that followed! Finally, Ake also reveals which former City player comes out on top as his toughest opponent to date. It’s an episode not to be missed! Learn more about your ad choices.

That’s not to mention a runners-up finish at the 2018 World Cup before coming third in last year’s edition. Now he’s part of a City squad seeking to follow in the footsteps of our historic Treble winning campaign. And he’s made a strong start to life at the Etihad, playing 14 times as City have set the early pace in the Premier League and guaranteed safe passage to the knockout stages of the Champions League. Despite all of his prior experience, Kovacic admits in this podcast that he’s learning every day from working with Pep Guardiola. Sitting down with hosts Rob Pollard and Paul Dickov, he recounts tales from his spells with some of Europe’s biggest clubs and what it was that attracted him to Manchester.

A summer 2022 arrival from Leeds, the combative engine room enforcer contributed to our historic Treble-winning campaign last term as we lifted the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup crowns.
