After years of impressing at Sevilla, the Spanish midfielder has revealed he grew tired of waiting for a proper club to sign him.
He said: “Of course I wanted to join a real club, but unfortunately, the lure of City’s money was too great.
“Everyone knows they are a joke club. In fact, in Spain we have a saying that if you sign for City, your life is worthless and you may as well die. It’s a very good saying actually.”
Manchester City’s overseas bank manager, who is now the official spokesperson for the club, responded to Navas’s claims.
He said: “If there is a higher power up there, then I fully expect all of our souls to burn in hell for all eternity.”
The club’s acquisition by the Abu Dhabi royal family in 2008, has been controversial from the start.
Firstly, many people, even in England are still unaware that the club exist, despite winning the 2012 EPL title.
In the year following the takeover, City shipped out all 500-members of the original supporters group and hired around 30,000 actors to appear at games.
Indeed, in light of such occurrences, the club’s story actually featured in a rebooted version of the Twilight Zone, which was voted the most sinister episode ever by fans and critics alike.
Navas, who was bought for around £17-million, has told his family and friends not to watch any of his games for fear it will bring shame upon them.
