Stars to shine at Tynecastle

7th July 2014

Nasri, Clichy, Negredo and Richards head up list of several Manchester City stars to make Tynecastle trip next week.

Excitement continues to build ahead of the visit of Manchester City as the Premier League champions have confirmed a multitude of stars will make the journey to Tynecastle.

Manuel Pellegrini's side will feature some of the most recognisable faces in British and world football when they take part in the Main Stand centenary match against the Jambos on Friday, July 18.

French internationalists Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy, and Spanish caps Javi Garcia, Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo will all grace the Tynecastle turf, while Serbian pair Aleksandar Kolarov and Matija Nastasic, as well as Montenegrin Stevan Jovetic, will join them.

Micah Richards and Jack Rodwell - both capped for England - and Scott Sinclair will also appear as Robbie Neilson's new-look side prepare for their toughest test of pre-season.

Already, the men in maroon are eagerly anticipating locking horns with the best the Premier League has to offer in what will be the first game at Tynecastle since ownership changed hands.

Neil Alexander: "If we can get a full house then it'll be a fantastic atmosphere and hopefully we can put on a good performance."

James Keatings: "It's very exciting to be playing against top quality players, the best in the world. It's something that I'm really looking forward to."

Morgaro Gomis: "It's something to look forward to. Manchester City is a big club with a lot of superstar players. It should be a good one and a good atmosphere."
