Maicon feels settled at Man City

Douglas Maicon says he's now finding his feet at Manchester City.

Maicon is now starting to find a role at City after being hampered by a foot injury following his August arrival from Inter Milan.

The 31-year-old has started four of the last five games and feels City's attacking philosophy fits his game well.

He said: "I am enjoying life in Manchester - everything's fine. I am a family man so the first thing that is important to me I that my family is okay.

"When they are settled, as they are now, my mind is only on training.

"I am training very well, to contribute to the team.

"The team is full of quality players, and the way City play they give the full-backs the ball and get them to attack. This suits my game.

"I am only sorry that I couldn't contribute at the start of the season because of my injury.

"Little by little I am getting back to my best, and trying to add something to the team."
