Negredo explains why he left Man City.

Updated: Feb 3

Former Spain international Alvaro Negredo has revealed why his Manchester City career didn’t go as planned.

The Spaniard moved from Sevilla to the Etihad back in 2013 for a reported fee of £20 million but he ended up playing for one season at the Etihad - where he had to compete with Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic.

“After February I had a shoulder injury which made it difficult for me to play,” Negredo told FourFourTwo

Arteta has a lot of faith in his young Gunners.

“The manager [Manuel Pellegrini] used other strikers instead, but I still feel I made the right move going to City.

“Playing alongside Aguero, Silva and Yaya Toure made my job easier. I was playing for the best team in England, in the best league in the world.

"Manchester's a good city and we were happy there. It's a nice city for a footballer, one where you can live in peace - even though there's too much rain!"
