John Stones told how to turn Manchester City career around

Former Manchester City player Trevor Sinclair has advised John Stones to seek sports psychologist's help in order to turn his Manchester City career around. The 25-year-old has found his playing time limited at Etihad, having made just 11 Premier League appearances this season. The England international is below Nicolas Otamendi and Fernandinho in the club boss Pep Guardiola's defensive pecking order. Stones was left out of the Blues' last two Premier League squads after struggling in the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace last month. And Sinclair has told the defender how to improve his form with the Citizens. He told talkSPORT: "John needs to refocus his career. If I was advising him I’d tell him to get some help from a sports psychologist. At the moment it looks like he doesn’t have a future, or the future we expected, at Manchester City. He’s got to try and get himself back on the right path. The fact that [Aymeric] Laporte hasn’t been available this season and Stones still hasn’t featured much sends alarm bells ringing for me. But even more telling is that the youngster Eric Garcia was on the bench at Tottenham. He’s a very good young player, but he doesn’t have the experience that Stones possesses. I like him, don’t get me wrong, but the fact he was chosen ahead of John Stones for such a big game speaks volumes for me."
