Former Arsenal fullback Gael Clichy doesn't take his place at Manchester City for granted.

Former Arsenal fullback Gael Clichy doesn't take his place at Manchester City for granted.

Clichy joined City in a £7m deal in July and has so far been sharing left-back duties with Aleksandar Kolarov. He is keen to play as much as possible but accepts squad rotation is a necessity.

"When you sign for a club like City, with all those players, you have to be ready for the competition," he said.

"You have to keep rotating – I have been there with Arsenal. When you are not injured and not playing you feel a bit upset, but that will pay off after December because we are playing every three days and you need a big squad to go all the way through."
