Fabian Delph retires from football – Manchester City FC

  • September 28, 2022

The former City midfielder spent four seasons at the Etihad Stadium having signed from Aston Villa in 2015.
Delph won every available domestic honour during his time at the Club, including two Premier League titles.
He is best remembered for his contribution to the first of those league triumphs, when he featured 29 times in all competitions during our historic 2017/18 campaign, predominantly at left-back.

Despite being an unfamiliar position, the Yorkshireman excelled for Pep Guardiola‘s men as we claimed a record 100 points en route to the Premier League title.
In total, Delph made 89 appearances for City before joining Everton in the summer of 2019.
The 32-year-old calls time on his career having won seven major honours, all during his time at the Etihad Stadium.
He was also part of the England squad to reach the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, the Three Lions’ best showing in a major tournament in over two decades.

Delph wrote on Instagram: “Today I announce my retirement with nothing but happiness and gratitude for what this beautiful game has given me.
“Massive shout out to my family, friends, players and staff from the amazing clubs I have been fortunate enough to represent as well as the support I have had from the fans.”
Everyone at City would like to congratulate Fabian on a fine career and wish him well in retirement.
