Manchester (PRWEB UK) 31 October 2012
Digital Sports Group are today launching the PFA Profile of Manchester City defender Jolen Lescott DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk. It was today the turn of Joleon Lescott to see his official PFA Profile.
Joleon Lescott signed for Manchester City from Everton for a free believed to be £22million in the summer of 2009. He made himself a regular in the Manchester City team soon after – and has soon become a fan favourite due to his solid partnership with Vincent Kompany. Lescott has won the F.A Cup and Barclays Premier League since his arrival to Manchester City – and has since established himself in the England set up due to his performances. Lescott now has a total of 22 international caps – and scored his only goal for the country in the 1-1 draw with France at Euro 2012. Lescott made his senior international debut against Estonia on 13th October 2007. A regular now at international level – it is apparent that his move to Manchester City really cemented his position in the England set up. Lescott has over 400 club appearances with Man City, Everton and Wolves – along with 32 goals. At Everton, Lescott formed a formidable partnership with now current England center back partner Phil Jagielka. 17 of Lescott's 32 career goals came at Everton – where he was known as a goal scoring center back – due to his ariel presence in the opposing penalty area. With over 100 appearances now for Manchester City – Lescott has been a senior figure in City's rise to the top of English football. He will be keen to leave his mark in Man City history with impressive performances in Europe.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Lescott will have no shortage of fans after his impressive performances for Manchester City and England.
“Of course a player with Lescott's talent requires a certain level of respect and responsibility and he is sure to be a major hit with fans on Facebook.”
Digital Sports Group will provide further PFA player profiles for every professional footballer in England as well as the latest football results. The Joleon Lescott Facebook Page is now live.
