Since his City debut in January Edin Dzeko has quietly chalked up 15 League and Cup starts scoring 8 goals. The signs are that the big man is becoming a key player…
The giant 25 year old Bosnian international looks sharper and fitter this season and confidence is clearly flooding through him bolstered by goals against the rags at Wembley and Swansea at The Etihad. He’s holding the ball up tremendously well and his impressive workrate is likely to reap more rewards if he can maintain it.
He looks to be at his best with another striker playing off him and it’s evident Dzeko is in bouyant mood having vowed last month to prove himself to City’s fans:
‘This year I feel fit and I feel very good – I feel much better than last season. I want to improve in every game, but I have started the season well. I try to do my best in every game to help the team.’
Once again we have another young City international talking up the team ethic:
‘Every good player is welcome to our team as we want to win titles.’
Roberto Mancini has worked hard to instill that mentality into his young squad and it’s a refreshing aspect for City fans in 2011 who had become sick to the back teeth of the likes of Tevez, Adebayor, Santa Cruz and numerous other off message players droaning on about their aspirations which invariably centred solely upon themselves.
All power to you Edin.
