Savic warns against Arsenal move

Stevan JoveticFiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic has been urged to snub Arsenal and sign for Manchester City by former City star Stefan Savic.

Montenegro defender Savic made 21 appearances in all competitions for City last season, picking up a Premier League winners medal in the process.

However, he was then used as a makeweight in a summer deal to bring Matija Nastasic from Fiorentina to the Etihad Stadium, meaning a link-up with international team-mate Jovetic at the Serie A outfit.

Jovetic has been heavily linked with a move away from La Viola in the summer, with Arsenal believed to be frontrunners for the 23-year-old.

However, Savic believes the former Partizan youngster would be better off signing for Roberto Mancini’s men as they have a greater chance of regularly winning silverware.

“They are a rising team, one of the best clubs in Europe,” said Savic. “They will win trophies and be in the Champions League every year.

“It was hard for me there because I came straight from the Serbian league. I won a league title but knew I had to play regularly to improve, so I left – it was my decision.

“It is different for Stevan. He has five years’ experience and could play straight away with Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez.”
