Celta Vigo midfielder Denis Suarez: Man City contract set up my family

Celta Vigo midfielder Denis Suarez insists he enjoyed his time at Manchester City.

Denis has been discussing his time in England.

“At first it was fine. I got there and I went on pre-season with the first team to the United States, I debuted with the first team in the first round of cup when I was 17 years old and sportingly, I was doing well," Suárez said.

“Life was a little different, it cost my parents more because they didn't speak English and they had trouble learning it.

“The second year was a little long, also because I had been injured, and finally I decided to go to Barcelona."

The now 25-year-old also explained why he joined City in the first place.

“My first decision was to stay here in the first team, but Celta did not contemplate that option.

“Then I went to Manchester City because it was an important step for me, it was an important investment for the club, who at that time needed money. The contract [offered to me] at that time had my family's life was fixed."
