Jelavic still wants City move

Mario Jelavic hopes he will be able to return to Manchester City after he saw his proposed move to the Etihad Stadium fall through.

Last Updated: 10/01/13 at 15:48 Post Comment

The 19-year-old Croatia striker has been training with City for the last few months and the Premier League champions were keen to sign him on a permanent deal.

But the former Hadjuk Split forward was denied a work permit and he has now returned to his homeland to sign for Slaven Belupo, but he remains hopeful he will one day be able to sign for City.

"Roberto Mancini told me that everything is sorted out, that we have an agreement and that I will stay at City," he told Sportske Novosti.

"But than it became clear that there will be problems with the work permit. They say that they will keep watching me so I really hope that everything is not dead yet.

"I had a great time over there, everybody helped me so much. It was great experience and I hope that one day I will have the luck to play for such a great club."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
