'I love the Bundesliga and I will return', says Manchester City striker Dzeko
The striker has two years left on his contract with Roberto Mancini’s men but is keen on a return to Germany, and says he hopes Borussia Dortmund reach the Champions League final
Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has reiterated his desire to return to the Bundesliga although he admits he is unsure when he may be able to make the move.
The Bosnia international joined City from Wolfsburg in 2011 and despite scoring 13 goals for Roberto Mancini’s men already this season, has spoken of his frustration after frequently being used as a substitute.
Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has recently described Dzeko as “extraordinary” but warned that if he wants to sign for his side he would have to “adapt financially”.
And speaking to German sports magazine Kicker, Dzeko said: “I love the Bundesliga and I will return to the Bundesliga. I can just not say when I will return.”
“I have still two years [on my] contract. We will see, what happens.”
City faced Dortmund in the Champions League group stages this season, and Dzeko has been full of praise for the German club, tipping them to reach the final of the competition.
“I am sure that they will reach the final. I wish it to them,” he added.
“A team that plays that good in a group with Real Madrid and us can beat everyone.”
However, Dzeko was quick to refute claims of an imminent move to Dortmund, saying it was “not true” that negotiations were taking place between the two clubs.
