Its not often that you hear of one of Manchester City’s former players still producing at the highest level. And while the likes of Gael Clichy, Javi Garcia and Alvaro Negredo are floating around Europe anonymously, one former City star is still at the top of his game.
During Wednesday evening’s game against Chelsea, Edin Dzeko scored twice to hand Roma a vital draw away from home. The former City striker was in absolutely scintillating form and scored a mercurial volley that was in the realms of genuine world class, along with a smart header to give Roma the lead for a brief period of time.
In fact, the Bosnian looked a threat for most of the 90 minutes; his ability to linger on the shoulders of defenders looking for through balls, whilst also offering a serious threat aerially means he is very hard to mark.
After the game, City fans took to Twitter to express their thoughts on their former striker…
Dzeko is one of the most underrated strikers ever, especially by City fans.

I dont mind Kolarov. He had his time at Etihad. But Dzeko had so much to offer. And we choose to get Wilf Bony and sell him. 😡😠😠😠
