Man City striker Dzeko: My Munich strop now forgotten

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko says any differences with manager Roberto Mancini during that infamous night in Munich have been forgotten.

Dzeko’s strop has been largely forgotten after his public show of displeasure at being substituted at the Allianz Arena was quickly and quietly handled with an apology to the manager and his teammates.

"That’s behind us," he said after scoring the first goal in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Wolves. "I apologised afterwards and everything’s finished.

"Every player wants to play. Sometimes you’re angry and that’s normal. It wasn’t so bad but I played for two-and-half years in Germany and I wanted to win and maybe score a goal.

"I’m trying to do my best. Sometimes it’s hard when you play badly and don’t score goals. At the moment everything’s good but you can’t score every game.

"It’s the most important game in the group because we’re two points behind Napoli and they’ve got a tough game in Munich. I don’t think they’re going to win, so we have to win to keep us in it."
