Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng feels injury wrecked his time at Manchester City.

The versatile 23-year-old defender failed to establish himself as a regular in the City side after suffering a couple of injuries, although he insists it was largely a positive experience.

"In many ways I was very unlucky. There were two lay-offs because of injury but apart from those I really enjoyed it," he explained to the Sunday Times.

"I liked the club and I liked the Premier League, which is a good challenge for any defender."

Boateng acknowledges that trying to contain City will be a particularly difficult challenge, saying: "City have such a strong squad in the attacking positions, it will be a very big test for us.

"I was looking at some of the scorelines they were getting and I thought 'Phew!'"
