Sylvain Distin revealed the reasons behind his celebrations following his goal (and City's third) during last nights victory over Aston Villa:
"I was a bit tired, but it was important for me because
a lot of people have been talking about me and saying things that were not
"So far I have never answered, never said anything and just done my
job out on the pitch.
I wanted to show people that didn't think I was here
for the right reasons that I am."
Whilst it is true that Distin has generally kept his own counsel regarding his contract status, as we head into the new year when he can negotiate with other clubs, his performances alongside Richard Dunne again this season illustrate what a huge gap would be left if he moved on in the summer - or even worse, during the January transfer window.
