Edin Dzeko finds Manchester City’s winner again – Dislikes super-sub role
Edin Dzeko wants to change the view of manager Roberto Mancini, who sees the in-form striker as a super-sub for Manchester City. After scoring the winning goal against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday night Edin Dzeko hopes Roberto Mancini will no longer overlook him for a role in Manchester United’s first-team.
The 26-year-old Bosnia and Herzegovina international has scored seven goals in 15 appearances for Manchester City in spite being called off the bench in most games. On Sunday night Edin Dzeko came off the bench once again to score the winner for Manchester City.
Manchester City found themselves trailing by a goal at half time due to Steven Caulker’s header. In the 65th minute Sergio Aguero leveled the game with a classy finish. Just before the final whistle Edin Dzeko became Manchester City’s savior once again by scoring the final and the winning goal of the game.
In a post match interview Edin Dzeko delivered a message to his manager through Sky Sports 1.
“The goals are my message. That's the only thing. It's not the first time (he has scored the winner) but it is a good feeling of course,” Edin Dzeko said.
Edin Dzeko also commented on Manchester City’s increasing defensive lapses this season. The forward admits Manchester City’s defense has succumbed to quite a few mistakes this season. Manchester City’s star center backs Vincent Kompany and Joleon Lescott have been unable to keep clean sheets most of the time.
In spite of their poor performance in defense, Manchester City came back strongly and shone through most of the game.
“Again from a free-kick we conceded a goal as stupid as against Arsenal,” Edin Dzeko said. “We have to improve there. But after goal we were the better team for the 90 minutes and in the end we deserved it.
“Even when we are losing we come back. I hope next time we winning 1-0 and then go on and win the game. This is much harder to play.”
Earlier in the season, Edin Dzeko hinted about an away move in order to find more playing opportunities in the first-team. AC Milan immediately showed interest in picking him up, but Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini was reluctant to lose Edin Dzeko.
Edin Dzeko is clearly a useful tool in Manchester City’s strike-force, but with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli and Roberto Mancini’s crazy strategies the young striker is getting little time on the field.
