Richard Dunne - Mr Manchester City! *Video*
Today has seen Richard Dunne leave City, Dunney has joined Aston Villa.
I think that Dunney leaving City should be viewed as a sad day for all concerned. I am only in my early twenties and have never seen our true greats of the past play live, but for the players I have seen play during my era, I think Dunney has been a hero and a legend in his own right.
I know a lot of people will totally disagree with me about Dunney being a legend, but to be honest that's how I view his time at City and I stick by it. Dunney never ever put a City shirt on without knowing he was going to give all he had when he stepped on the pitch, he made mistakes at times (mainly because he had to cover someone else) but you could not question his commitment to our Club.
I am really going to miss watching Dunney's full blooded tackles, his ball hoofing and watching him steam past people with his deceiving pace. It is going to be weird not seeing Dunney walk on to the pitch after all these years, I guess it is something we will have to get used to as our club moves forward.
Richard won many Player of the year awards at City, well I say Richard Dunne player of the last decade!
Goodbye Dunney, you will be greatly missed, but will always be more than welcome at Manchester City Football Club.
