Stevan Jovetic pleased to be at City

Stevan Jovetic is convinced he made the right choice in choosing to move to Manchester City this summer.

• Mooney: City to strike back

Jovetic, 23, had been linked with a number of European clubs including Arsenal and Juventus, but opted to sign for City from Fiorentina in July for £22 million.

And the Montenegro international says it was the club’s ambition to challenge for silverware this season that persuaded him to make the move to Manchester.

"There were other offers, other interest in England, but I don't want to name the clubs," he told the Daily Mail. "City were quick in the way they moved for me and that proved they wanted me a lot.

"They are playing to win the Premier League. They are playing in the Champions League. They have a very good team and I hope I will be winning some trophies here.

"That's important. I was in Florence for five years, but I won nothing."

City also moved to bring in Alvaro Negredo from Sevilla this summer, while allowing Carlos Tevez to move on to Juvenuts.

But Jovetic says he is not worried about the pressure of replacing the Argentina international, and is adamant he can be a success at the Etihad Stadium.

"I don't feel any pressure," he said. "I know about how great [Carlos] Tevez and [Sergio] Aguero are as players. They are two fantastic players, but all I can do is my best. Replacing Tevez will be a massive task. But I will just give 100% and try to fill those shoes in the best possible way.

"Obviously it depends on the tactical system, but I like to either play on the left-hand side cutting in or just behind the front striker, playing as a second striker. We will see."
