Manchester City ace rubbishes exit rumours

Manchester City attacker Stevan Jovetic has scrapped rumours that he is looking to leave the club at the end of the season.

The Montenegro international only signed for the Sky Blues from Fiorentina last summer, but despite arriving with a reputation as one of Europe’s top young players he has struggled at the Etihad Stadium.

Injuries have played their part in Jovetic’s woes, limiting the Eastern European star to just seven Premier League showings and one goal.

This in turn has led to talk of a possible exit, which was further fuelled earlier in the campaign after Manuel Pellegrini openly questioned his fitness and desire.

But despite talk of a return to Italy at the end of the current campaign, the skilful 24-year-old is insistent that he is going nowhere:

“It’s not true,” he responded wen quizzed on the situation by the Manchester Evening News.

“I never said that. I don’t think like this. I am really happy because this is one of the best teams in the world.”

Jovetic did however go on to say that he has found it difficult to adapt to life in Manchester:

“I am not homesick, I don’t think like this,

“The city is not bad but the weather is really bad compared to Florence where there is always sunshine, it is very nice compared to here. The weather is not helping!”
