Manchester City and Spain international midfielder Javi Garcia believes he has won over the club's fans after a slow start to his Etihad Stadium career. He said: "It was hard last season because I was only involved occasionally and I found it difficult to get into a rhythm because I might play one or two games and then I wouldn't play for the next two or three - or be on the bench.
"That makes it impossible to get to the level you know you are capable of. That only comes when you have a run of games, so last season was very stop-start for me.
"There have been times when it hasn't been so easy. Sometimes in the quieter moments of a game, you can hear the fans maybe aren't happy with you.
"But things have been different recently and I know I have heard them getting behind me which helps me more."
