Cole Palmer gave the least media-trained interview of all-time after Manchester City's 5-0 thrashing of FC Copenhagen

Fans are loving Manchester City starlet Cole Palmer providing the least media-trained interview ever seen from a footballer.

Palmer, a boyhood City fan who has been with the clubs since Under 8's, came on for two-goal haul hero Erling Haaland at half-time of the 5-0 rout against Copenhagen.


City were already three goals to the good thanks to Haaland's brace and an own goal from Davit Khocholava, with Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez adding gloss on the Champions League triumph.

Palmer got 45 minutes under his belt and made his 20th appearance for City, impressing with a number of lovely runs and touches.

Afterwards, the Wythenshawe winger was whisked in for media duties and was a breath of fresh air.

Palmer, hood up and laidback as ever, answered questions as though he was just chatting with his mates.

Discussing Haaland, Palmer said: "Scores every time he gets the ball, doesn’t he?! It's frightening. Good lad as well. Delighted to have him!”

On nearly scoring himself, he added: "I know yeah, thought I was gonna! Next time."

After James Maddison received praise for being so open and honest in his chat on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, Palmer too has been commended for being his authentic self.

This isn't the first time Palmer has delivered a gem of an interview without really meaning to. In January, after scoring one and assisting another in the 4-1 FA Cup win over Swindon Town, Palmer spoke to Gabriel Clarke of ITV and it was so refreshing.

He memorably delivered the line, "Prem soon come" - referring to looking for his first top-flight goal - and it went down a treat.

Palmer made his City debut against Burnley in the Carabao Cup in 2020 and went on to find the net against Wycombe Wanderers and Club Brugge.

He hit headlines last term for playing for both the City first-team and the Under 23's in the same day, hitting a hat-trick in the second fixture.
