The midfielder donned a high vis vest instead of the sky blue strip to get stuck into some hard graft planting trees alongside apprentices at the club’s future training ground, the City Football Academy.
Manchester City runs an apprenticeship scheme in partnership with BAM Construction at the site of the new training facility.
Michael Owen, who is a general construction apprentice on the scheme and was helped out on the day by Navas said: “My apprenticeship with BAM at the City Football Academy has been instrumental in building qualities such as my approach to problem solving, remaining calm under pressure and prioritising tasks. It’s also helped me to work independently and work within a team; it’s an endless list of skills that you cannot learn from any other process.”
Keep your eyes peeled for all things apprenticeship next week!
