Jovetic Accuses Pellegrini
Sunday, 15th Feb 2015 11:26
Stevan Jovetic has accused Manchester City manager of "killing him" after he was left out of the Champions League squad. The Montenegro international was sensationally left out to make room for £28million January buy Wilfried Bony.
The 25-year-old told mirror.co.uk: 'I deserve to play in the Champions League. I know that.
'The manager has killed me with this decision. I feel I deserve my place and other people have told me the same.
'People have told me I am a great player, but it is clear that the manager doesn't think the same way.
'I am very disappointed, even now. I don't think it was a good decision – or the right decision.
'I know that I deserve to be on the list. I told the manager this, but he didn't want to listen to me. I came here to play in the Champions League.'
Italian clubs Inter Milan and Juventus have showed an interest and Jovetic added;'I have not made any decision about my future. I will wait until the summer then we will see.
'But the manager has put other players ahead of me, so maybe this is a message about what he wants to do.
'It is difficult to be focused when something like this happens, but I am a professional and I want to show that I can still play a big part this season.
'This is a bad time for me, but I am working hard and I will be there for the team.'
Jovetic, 25, arrived from Fiorentina for £22m in July 2013.
