Kalvin Phillips reveals his favourite moment of Manchester City’s treble celebrations| SolSportHQ
Kalvin Phillips has named the best dancer in the Manchester City dressing room and revealed which part of his side’s treble-winning celebrations he enjoyed the most.
The midfielder helped City secure the historic-treble – winning the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup during the 2022-2023 campaign.
However, Phillips – who signed from Leeds United for £45million – endured a difficult time during his first season at the club.
The 27-year-old made just 21 appearances for City last term, starting just two Premier League games for the champions.
Nevertheless, Phillips enjoyed himself during his maiden campaign and even revealed who the worst dressed player in the squad is in a hilarious round of quick-fire questions with Mail Sport.
When asked who the worst dressed member of the squad was, Phillips replied: Rodrigo. He’s got horrendous style, horrendous style. He loves it though. He thinks it’s the best.
Phillips did heap praise on Cole Palmer though. When asked who the best youngster in the Manchester City squad was, Phillips named the 21-year-old without a moment of hesitation.
Phillips also joked that the best part of City’s treble celebrations was witnessing the state of Jack Grealish following their celebratory trip to Ibiza. The England star said: ‘There was a lot [of moments I enjoyed] but probably the state of Jack Grealish after the trip in Ibiza.’
Following on from that, Phillips was asked whether there was anything else he wanted to share from their trip to Ibiza. The 27-year-old couldn’t help but laugh before saying ‘Nothing, nothing’.
Phillips did give Mail Sport a slight insight to their treble celebrations by crowning John Stones as the best dancer. Although, he did say Manuel Akanji was a close contender.
The hilarious interview finished with the City midfielder revealing he would be a PE teacher if he wasn’t a footballer.
Manchester City are back in pre-season training ahead of the 2023-2024 campaign after a thoroughly enjoyable 2022-2023 season.
The Premier League side are visiting South Korea and Japan as they look to build on a historic Treble-winning season that included a maiden Champions League victory.
Whilst out there, the Guardiola’s side will be taking on Yokohama F. Marinos, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid.
Pep Guardiola’s side will get their first opportunity to add to their silverware from last season when they play Arsenal in the Community Shield on August 6.
