Swansea midfielder Celina values his time at Man City

Swansea City signing Bersant Celina values his time at Manchester City.

The midfielder left City for Swansea this summer.

Celina said, "I was really young coming to City, there is a new academy and everything is just amazing there. From every age they have great players," he said.

“I am grateful for my time and chance there. Manuel Pellegrini was a big influence on me, he was the guy that took me up to the first team and I will always be thankful to him.

“There were so many wonderful players. I admired many of them but when I trained with the first team I looked to David Silva.

“Watching him play was incredible, just amazing. He was not the only one, but I loved the way he played. To set up a goal for someone like Aguero is something you will always remember."
