Miguel Timm Earns Praise From Man City Legend

Wright-Phillips, a former winger for City, Queens Park Rangers, and Chelsea, recently revealed his admiration for Timm while in Cape Town for Puma South Africa’s hosting of the EPL and FA Cup trophies as part of Manchester City‘s global tour.

“I have a friend here in South Africa who I played with while I was in Arizona and his name is Miguel Timm,” said Wright-Phillips during an interview on PrimeSports With Mahlatse.

“He plays for Orlando Pirates here in South Africa now but for me he is a phenomenal footballer and for someone of his ability he should have achieved a lot more in his career.

Wright-Phillips emphasised Timm’s intelligence on the field, suggesting the 32-year-old should have achieved even greater things in his career.

“This is because there are not too many footballers that I played with, especially in the US, with the same level of football IQ as him. He is getting older now and if you have him in that midfield area it is a plus. 

“I was a winger, so I always knew he would get the ball to me and I didn’t even need to shout. All I needed was to make the right move and the ball would be there for me to attack.” 

The former England international also applauded Timm’s personality, stating that he would exude a good aura around people. Wright-Phillips expressed his surprise that the Orlando Pirates star is not in the Bafana Bafana squad.

“I think he is fantastic, even if you have him around the dressing room the younger kids could learn a lot from him. I have been surprised he is not playing for the national team, but like I said it also depends on what clubs you are at.

“England used to be like that. For me to be able to get into the national team on a permanent basis, I had to leave the club that I loved.”
