Sam Cosgrove, a Manchester City fan, has his eyes on the Premier League- but is happy at Aberdeen for now.

The striker has been excellent for the Dons this season and netted the 20th of his season against Celtic before he was controversially sent off. It’s brought about plenty of attention with bigger sides surely ready to circle him.

40 goals in 15 months is quite the record but Cosgrove reckons that seeing out the term at Pittodrie is best for him.

He told the Daily Record: “You want to get as high as you can. I don’t see why I can’t go to the Premier League if the opportunity arises. I’m a Man City fan. If I could end up there it’d be all right – but I wouldn’t put myself down as a Pep Guardiola kind of striker!


“If I keep improving and reach my potential then I’ll be happy wherever I end up. Do I have things to improve on? One hundred per cent.

“I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the finished article. There’s a lot more to come and a lot more potential in me. Aberdeen is a place where I can thrive.”

Cosgrove has earned the right to dream EPL

It’s no longer fair to say Cosgrove is just on a hot streak of form. It’s more accurate to say Cosgrove has identified his strengths and weaknesses whilst finding a consistent touch.

He’ll hit 30 goals easily this season and to hit 20 before Christmas is outstanding. Cosgrove’s an old fashioned number nine but the 22-year-old sure is effective.

With age on his side and plenty of confidence, the Manchester City fans has earned the right to dream of the Premier League. Perhaps a move to Championship football beckons next and if he thrives there then the EPL is the next step.

Will he get to play for his boyhood heroes City though? Time will tell I suppose but it’s undeniable that he’s one of the SPFL’s best players now.
