Dzeko makes immediate impression

Edin Dzeko has immediately endeared himself to Manchester City supporters by announcing in his first press conference that he has heard the city is populated by their fans, rather than Manchester United's.

Dzeko riles United

• On The Move: January 11
• Bridge poised to join Hammers
• Platini: Rules will be enforced

Dzeko was presented to the media on Tuesday afternoon following his £27 million move from Wolfsburg and mounted a slick PR offensive as he praised City fans, the club and his new manager Roberto Mancini.

The Bosnian striker, who joined City in the most expensive transfer in Bundesliga history after scoring 66 goals in 111 games for Wolfsburg, says he is excited about enjoying future success with City's expensively-assembled squad.

"I hear a lot about the fans and that most of the people from Manchester are Manchester City fans," Dzeko told a press conference. "I don't know too much about the rivalry but I hear the derby is something special.

"I'm very pleased. I'm here at a big club like Manchester City with big ambition. I saw something else in Man City. It's a big club and I'm an ambitious player and I think we can have a lot of success together.

"It's a project. I need to say it's a very good team with a very good coach. It was three-and-a-half beautiful years with Wolfsburg and we had a lot of success, winning the league for the first time in our history. I was very happy there but I wanted to change, try something new and better and that's why I'm here.''

City manager Roberto Mancini added: "I am very happy the club bought Dzeko. I think he'll be a very important player for the future of this club. We wanted him in the summer because we knew he was the perfect player for us. He is different from the other players we have. Now we have a good mix. I hope he can score a lot of goals like in Germany.

"I think we spoke with him six months ago for the first time. We wanted to know if there was a chance to buy him but we do this now in January. It's important because now we are in a good position in the league. With one player like him we can improve in the Barclays Premier League and the Europa League. We have more chances in this moment.

"He has quality, he has a good attitude, a good mentality ... he's a strong player and he has experience but he is young. These are all things that are very important for the club.

"If one striker scores in Germany or Italy I think they score in England. The Barclays Premier League is difficult but I'm sure it will continue. For me he is one of the best strikers in Europe. With the other strikers we have we can have one of the best attacks in Europe.''
