When Manchester City signed Stevan Jovetic from Serie A side Fiorentina in the summer of 2013 for a hefty fee of £22m, he was expected to be key member for them in the coming seasons.

The Spaniard failed to find the target after mid-January and finished the Premier League on nine goals. Although he ended the season on a low note, his goals at home in the first half […]

City face Barcelona in the first leg of the round of 16 at the Etihad on 24th February before visiting the Nou Camp three weeks later. The current Champions League regulations dictate that Manchester City  must name only 16 foreign players instead of the usual 17 and only 21 players in total since they breached UEFA’s Financial Fair Play restrictions. With the arrival of Bony, manager Manuel Pellegrini, complying with the UEFA regulations, has dropped  Jovetic in favor of the Ghana International. Jovetic has started just one […]
