“He’s certainly one of the Premier League greats that’s for sure. He’s right up there. He’s a fantastic player,” the current Derby County manager, said at his press conference on Wednesday.

“He’s been an outstanding player. He’s been an absolute revelation in the Premier League and one of the best strikers in the world.

“His goal ratio is incredible and I’m sure he will be missed at Manchester City. I’m sure the Premier League will miss a player of his quality.

“From my point of view, I’d just to congratulate him on his career over here.

“Whether he stays in England or not obviously I don’t know but he’s certainly had a fantastic career with Manchester City.”
