Signed from Real Madrid in early 2012, Jose Angel Pozo La Rosa went on to be nominated for the Academy Player of the Year award in 2012/13 - his first full season at the club.
Pozo's favourite player is Zinedine Zidane and while Jose might share Zizou’s balletic poise, he does his damage further up the pitch in the opposition’s penalty area.
Pozo is quick over the first 10 yards and, as one might expect from a Spaniard, has great technique, able to find teammates with perfectly weighted passes. These are qualities that have propelled Pozo into the Spain u17 set-up over the last year.
Although an ankle injury ended his 2012/13 season early, Pozo was City's top scorer at under-21 level by a distance, despite the fact he was playing against players up to five years his senior.
Originally from Malaga, Jose signed pro terms at City in July 2013 and will be looking to get in amongst the goals for the EDS in the upcoming campaign and perhaps catch the eye of Manuel Pellegrini for a first-team debut...
