Holds starting spot in defense
DManchester City
May 30, 2024
Akanji made 30 appearances (28 starts), notching two goals on 15 shots to go along with 23 interceptions, 42 tackles and 61 clearances.
ANALYSIS
Akanji maintained a decent presence in the starting XI last season but saw a boost in time this campaign, starting four more times and becoming an everyday sight in the defense. He also saw his best season attacking-wise, notching four goals across all competitions, giving him a new career-high for a season. He should come into City next season holding the same role, likely sharing time with Nathan Ake and John Stones if both remain at the club.
