Gareth Barry has revealed the conversation that convinced him to snub Liverpool and join Manchester City.

But it was a difficult decision at the time, and Barry reveals what swung it for him, in a meeting with City manager Mark Hughes.



His decision proved accurate as he won the Premier League and FA Cup with the Blues, his only major honours – Liverpool won just a single League Cup in the same period.



“I spoke with Mark Hughes about the project and he said City are a train that’s going somewhere special, and you’d be foolish not to get on it.

That kind of hit-list made Barry realise City were deadly serious, and he feels that the train has been picking up speed ever since.

Barry, however, believed that City were selling him a future rather than a past, and signed up.

But Rafa Benitez wanted the Aston Villa star at Anfield, and dangled the Merseysiders’ rich European pedigree as a temptation – Liverpool had won the Champions League just four years earlier.
