England boss Woy Hodgson is the latest to say that Jack Rodwell might struggle to get a regular place at Sitteh this season.
'Our Jack' jumped ship on Sunday in a deal that suited both Everton and Sitteh completing his £15m+ transfer but how much time on the pitch will he get this season?Woy thinks very little, just like Big Joe Royle does too.
Roberto Mancini has already warned Rodwell he may face a wait to establish himself at the Etihad Stadium, which is not ideal for the England No.1.
Woy said: 'I'll be honest. I think this year there'll be quite a few times I have to select players who won't be in their team.'
'I don't know how many starts Jack Rodwell will get at Manchester City.'
'That's a risk, but it's the nature of the Premier League.'
'There are so few English players in the league, and many of them playing for the same club.'
Maybe the grass will not be greener for 'Our Jack'?
