Geovanni delighted with Man City welcome

Geovanni admits he's been amazed at the way Manchester City fans have welcomed him to Eastlands.

"I have a one-year contract and, regardless of what happens in the future, Manchester City are part of my history and in my heart," he told City Magazine. "I feel a lot of respect and affection towards me from the City supporters and I thank God for everything.

"This club is made from the loyalty and passion of its supporters and I find it amazing they are shouting my name already. They are chanting my name even when I make a good pass or do a trick - I couldn't ask for better backing after such a short time at a new club.

"It's been a long time since I have had that kind of adoration and I'm really happy with the way things are going. I haven't been with City long, but I already feel I've achieved a lot.

"I have a wonderful wife and two fantastic children, Daniel and Geovanna. I came to Manchester on my own and they came along after and the settling-in part of our relocation has been excellent.

"My wife is working and the children are learning English. All I have to worry about is playing football! I like the city and I'm feeling very settled and happy already. It's been perfect, in fact."
