Dzeko: I want to repeat Manchester City success at Roma

The Bosnian striker is keen to add to his trophy haul after arriving in Italy, leaving the two-time Premier League champions on loan following a five-year spell


Edin Dzeko has set his sights on repeating the success of his Manchester City stint after clinching a loan move to Italian side Roma.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina international has arrived at the Stadio Olimpico on a temporary deal worth €4 million (£2.8m), with a clause included for the Serie A side to make permanent the switch for €11m (£7.8m).

“I’m immediately happy to be here,” Dzeko told reporters as he was presented on Thursday. “The weather is nice! I’ve followed Roma because my friend Miralem Pjanic is here. It’s a great club.

“I have a good relationship with Miralem. Both he and [director of football Walter] Sabbatini told me good things about being here – the climate, the city and the fans.

“Roma have big plans for the future and I hope to help the club reach them.”

Dzeko collected two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup and a Community Shield during his time at the Etihad Stadium and remains hungry for silverware.

“I have spent four wonderful years with Manchester City,” the 29-year-old added.

“They have grown a lot over the years. I hope to repeat the same path here.

“Working hard, I hope to achieve the things I did in Manchester with Roma.”
