Edin Dzeko: I hoped to face Manchester City. It's a tough task

Edin Dzeko, one of the most underrated strikers in the world, spoke to Joleon Lescott on BT Sports. The topic is, as you can expect, the final match of the Champions League between Inter and Manchester City. The striker from Bosnia and Herzegovina played for Manchester City and many remember the great goal in the 90th minute against QPR that was key to winning the title.

Three minutes after that, Kun Aguero scored for a complete turnaround, and City won the title in a great way. “It’s difficult,” -he said, as quoted by eurosport.com “I haven’t been there for like, eight years and I was praying that at some point in the Champions League I’d get the chance to play against City at the Etihad Stadium but unfortunately, I never got the chance.
I know that we were a big part of the beginning of the City era which was the most important so now when I see City, I’m always happy.

I know that I meant a lot to the club and the fans”.

Edin Dzeko talks about Augero's goal

Edin Dzeko is aware that his goal did not attract as much attention as Aguero's did. “Obviously when you see the game, Aguero’s goal was like a relief and it brought us the title after so many years so it’s normal that goal is like, EVERYTHING.

My goal was just as important but maybe people don’t talk about that as much as Aguero’s goal, which is normal.
But I know that goal was a huge goal for Manchester City and the history of the club”.
This great striker is aware of how important the match is.

This final will arouse special emotions, especially because Dzeko will play against his former club. “Like I said, I wanted to play them at some point in the Champions League but playing them [now] is a tough task for us but being in the final against MY club is a big thing for me so I’m looking forward to it," -he said.
“I will have a lot of fans in the stadium on both sides so I cannot wish for more”.
