Man City boss Eriksson delighted with "electric" Petrov

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson is delighted with the current form of winger Martin Petrov.

Of all Eriksson's eight signings, the £4.7million former Atletico Madrid winger appears to be the one who has settled quickest.

And, after struggling throughout his time as England boss to find a natural left-sided midfielder, it seems ironic the City manager has managed to pick one up straight away on his return to the club scene.

"I have always known Martin was a great player," he said.

"What he did in Spain and for his national team (Bulgaria) was fantastic.

"He has pace and a good left foot. He can shoot and cross. He is one of those electric players; something always happens when he gets the ball and the fans are excited by that.

"Scoring two goals away from home in the Premier League is an achievement in itself. But that is his standard and now he is getting fitter, he will get better still."
