Manuel Akanji has a sparkling start to his life at the Etihad Stadium.
The 27-year-old made his move to Manchester City this summer and has enjoyed a solid start to his Premier League season.
He has started eight games for the Cityzens this season and explains how he settled into life at the Etihad.
”Everything happened late in the transfer window to be honest,” Akanji told Sportsmail. ”It was through my agent but Erling also texted me saying he had heard something and saying that City had asked him about me.
”I wasn’t sure if it was serious or not. I said I was keen to come but I am always insecure in those situations as I don’t want to get my hopes up. But all of a sudden I was here and really happy. I have been playing in the team but that hasn’t surprised me.’
‘I thought I could fit here and I am happy I have,’ adds Akanji. ”I don’t worry too much and I play better if I don’t think or stress too much about the game. I know what I can do, I know what I am capable of.”
