Roberto Mancini spoke to the Man City’s web site regradging the new signing, and confirmed that Kolarov’s arrival doesn’t mean that Wayne Bridge will be leaving Eastlands:“I want two top class players for each position,”
“I first saw Kolarov in his Lazio debut back in 2007,” revealed the manager. “He was composed on the ball had an excellent delivery with his left foot and was technically very able. I have watched him a lot since then and so have the Manchester City scouts. His attacking capability is very good. He is fast and can shoot with power and accuracy. He also has the ability to play in numerous positions and is very good in midfield. This is an additional benefit to the team. He has a fantastic international career ahead of him. I am looking forward to working with him.”
Kolarov played twice for Serbia at the World Cup in South Africa and will join fellow new signings David Silva, Yaya Toure and Jerome Boateng.
