FC Twente midfielder Bersant Celina determined to make it at Man City

FC Twente midfielder Bersant Celina is determined to make it at parent club Manchester City.

As Pep Guardiola assesses his options for next season, Celina will return to Manchester in summer with a solid season of competitive football under his belt in a team that values possession.

"It's a really big opportunity playing in a big stadium like this in a very competitive league with good players," he told City TV.

"They're all really nice people. We all get on well, we really get on together and have a lot of fun but everyone is serious about the football and wants to win. It's very competitive.

"We play possession based football and we have a very young squad with really talented players. We try to play nice football.

"We normally play 4-2-3-1 . I play as a No.10 in front of the two midfielders behind the striker. I really enjoy playing that position and think that's the position I'm best at.

"I've learned that I can manage playing first team football in front of a big crowd. That's something I knew I could handle. It's good to come here and show everyone that I can."
