The Roma forward says he will watch the Manchester Derby this Sunday and will be rooting for his former teammates

Bosnian attacker Edin Dzeko played for Manchester City from 2011 to 2015 in the English Premier League.

He was loaned to Italian Lega Serie A club Roma in 2015 and was sold to the Italians in 2016.

And even after being years apart from the Citizens, he remembers them fondly.

“For the fans, beating QPR to win the title is probably the best game ever, but beating United 6-1 is probably the best we ever played and wouldn’t be far behind,” recalled Dzeko according to the team’s official website.

“It’s one of the best performances in City’s history and I’m just glad I was part of it all.”

“To get two in the space of a few minutes was special – the first was with my knee, but the second was thanks to a pass from another world from the Magician, David Silva,” he added.

“Sometimes I watch the game again to relive it and it always brings a huge smile to my face.”

“City will start as favorites, but derby games are strange and don’t always go to form,” he commented.

“I’m not there anymore, but City is still my club.”
