The midfielder who has played the most appearances in the English Premier League (EPL) for 21 seasons has returned to the ground after 3 years.
In particular, he is said to have made a shocking comeback to football at the age of 42, the protagonist of Manchester City’s first league championship.
The protagonist is former Manchester City star Gareth Barry. The British Daily Star reports that Barry has returned to soccer boots on a short-term contract until the end of this season.
Barry signed with the Kinderminster-based club. The team is made up of players over the age of 35. The 42-year-old is likely to be the best team to play for this year.
Manchester City and England international Barry announced his retirement from professional football in 2020 after being knocked out of the Premier League for the first time in his career by West Bromwich Albion.
By the time he retired from the EPL, Barry had played in a total of 652 matches. He has made the most appearances since 1992-93 when the EPL was launched. More than Ryan Giggs’ 632.
Fans are all welcome for Barry, who returned to the ground after signing a contract with Compverton after three years. Fans said, “Former Manchester City, Everton midfielder Barry has become a Cumberton player. The former England international has played for his country 53 times.” 슈퍼벳 토토
The reason Barry puts on soccer boots again is for the team to win. His team, Comverton, was the main character of last year’s Veteran’s Cup, and they brought him as a contract to win the league this season.
Meanwhile, Barry moved to Aston Villa as a trainee in 1997 after going through Brighton and Hove Albion. He made his first team debut in 1998. He made 441 appearances for Aston alone, including league and cup competitions. In 2000 he was even selected for the England national team.
After 12 years at Aston Villa, Barry moved to Manchester City in 2009 for a fee of £12 million. And he had the honor of becoming Manchester City’s first winning member in the 2010–11 season.
Barry, who was loaned to Everton on the last day of the summer transfer window in 2013, moved to Everton permanently after the Manchester City contract expired. He also became the first player to receive 100 yellow cards in the Premier League era at Everton.
