Mark Hughes hasn’t wasted much time in strengthening Man City’s squad, with the unveiling yesterday of Jo, signed from CSKA Moscow for a “club record” undisclosed fee.


Jo is only 21 years old, but he bagged 44 goals in 77 games for CSKA since joining from Corinthians in 2005. The Russian league is not as strong as the Premiership, but equally it isn’t that bad.  It’s understandable that City would break their transfer record to sign him – he’s big, fast, powerful and skilful.

Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.
