Negredo explains why he left Man City.

Updated: Nov 20, 2023

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

“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!"
