Edin Dzeko admits he's becoming increasingly frustrated at Manchester City.

The striker is fed-up with his 'supersub' tag.

"I’ve proved myself wherever I have been which is why, maybe, I can say that although some people and maybe some of you guys, some of the media, don’t respect me very much I have done it before and I will do it again,” snapped Dzeko in the Sunday Telegraph.

“Yes, some people don’t respect me.

“I don’t know why. I don’t find it upsetting or anything. Maybe when I was younger I found it harder but now I’m older, more experienced and I know what I can do and what I have achieved then I just concentrate on my own game.”

He added: "It’s not great for me. But with my goals and with the goals I have scored so far this year I think I deserve to play more.”
