Roma midfielder Pjanic surprised by Man City performance

AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic was surprised by the lack of potency from Manchester City last night.

Roma drew 1-1 at Champions League opponents City.

"We are aware of our quality and wanted to play our football, which we did. We expected to be under more pressure on their home turf, but were prepared for anything," the Bosnian international told Sky Sport Italia.

"The team fully deserved this draw and could've done something more, in my view. Let's say it is a positive result and we've had a good start to this Champions League group.

"We saw that we were in the most difficult group, but Manchester City and Bayern Munich still have to play on our home turf and we need to get other players back to fitness. We believe in our chances of progressing."
