Philippe Sandler blames bad luck for Man City nightmare as he quits following ZERO league appearances in three years

PHILIPPE SANDLER has no regrets about Manchester City and puts his lack of success at the club down to bad luck.

Sandler, 24, signed for The Citizens in 2018 but never made a single appearance under Pep Guardiola.

He was on loan at French club Troyes this season but that was cut short and his City contract was cancelled to allow Sandler to sign for Feyenoord.

And the defender is glad to be back in his native Netherlands, though he does not think he made a bad decision by signing for City.

Sandler told Dutch outelt NOS: “I just had bad luck.

“With hindsight, you can say that it was not the right choice, but it could just as well have been very different.

“I’m at Feyenoord now, one of the biggest clubs in the Netherlands. I’m not that bad off.

“For me, it feels like coming home. You’re close to your family again, which is something I miss abroad.”
