The 27-year-old Serbia international was strongly linked with a move away from City during the summer transfer window, with Juventus credited with an interest in the full-back.

However, Kolarov insists he has no plans to quit City and is focused on fighting for his place in Manuel Pellegrini's side.

"There were a lot of talk about Juventus but I never said I wanted to go," Kolarov told The Sun.

"I have two more years of contract at City, so I'm focused on working hard in training and, when I have the chance to play, giving my best.

"I am happy at City so now we'll see what happens. I am professional and I will be looking to win something this year."

City kick-off their UEFA Champions League campaign next week against Viktoria Plzen and Kolarov admits they are looking to make an impact in Europe this term after crashing out at the group stages in the last two seasons.

"That competition is important for us," added Kolarov. "Last year was not good but now we've a good group and we can go through.

"Pellegrini did very well in the Champions League at Villarreal and Malaga. He has experience and that will be good for us."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
