It all marks a remarkable turn around for a player who found himself frozen out of the team earlier in the season following a public falling out between his coach, Pep Guardiola and agent, Dmitri Seluk. All parties involved patched things up and the Ivorian was restored to the first team.
His return has coincided with a nice run of form for City who have won every of the five matches he has started. With things going so well, the player says he is willing to commit his future to the club after his contract runs out at the end of the season.
‘When I signed for City, I came to this club to make history.’
‘I want this club to be bigger than Manchester United. I know it’s going to be a lot of work, but that’s my dream. ‘I want to make something very important. I already won two Premier League titles and I want more than that, another new story. ‘I have been lucky to play at big clubs – Barcelona and Olympiakos. Those teams were always used to being champions. But City, it was something different, and I am happy now. ‘I think I’ve always been a key figure. To be honest, I belong on the field.’
