Edin Dzeko will stay at Man City, claims Bosnia-Herzegovina coach
Man City transfers: Bosnia-Herzegovina coach Safet Susic says he expects Edin Dzeko to stay at the Citizens this summer
Edin Dzeko will stay at Manchester City this summer, according to Bosnia-Herzegovina coach Safet Susic.
The 27-year-old has struggled to retain a place in Manchester City’s starting line-up this season despite the patchy form of the club’s star striker Sergio Aguero.
Dzeko scored 15 goals in 16 Premier League starts but still found himself down the pecking order, prompting speculation that he could leave the Eastlands outfit.
But Roberto Mancini’s sacking this month means Dzeko has the chance to impress the Italian’s successor – and Susic reckons the former Wolfsburg man will stay at City.
“This season, he played around 40 games, which is really quite enough,” Susic told Sport.ba. “The question is if Dzeko is satisfied with this. Of course, that is not my business.
“Will he leave in the summer? I don’t think so. New manager Manuel Pellegrini is coming in and Edin is part of a great team.
“Besides that, I have never heard him say one bad thing about this club. He was always very happy with his life at City.
“But maybe his biggest problem was that he is a very nice guy who is honest and who never had any problems. It is easier to put such a player on the bench than those showmakers Balotelli and Tevez.
“It will be his decision, but I believe that he will stay. He is smart enough and I know he will opt for what will be the best thing for him.”
