John Stones: "I’m going to go back in for the first game against Chelsea in the Community Shield. I just want to keep the momentum going. I will have a break. I will just make sure I am fighting fit for the new season." pic.twitter.com/czdstutV4b— City Watch (@City_Watch) July 15, 2018
“I’ve really enjoyed playing, I’ve enjoyed my football, I’ve enjoyed the challenges of playing in the biggest games. I felt like I’ve expressed myself, tried to bring everything to the table.
“Enormous credit to Gareth and everyone behind the scenes for the way it has been and carried out.
“That’s the aim now. We’ll go away, reflect a lot. Obviously we’re still hurting but also I think we should be really proud and we will take a lot of positives from the tournament.”
