Summer signing scores brace in cup thrashing.
Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic was pleased to get off the mark for his new club with two goals against Wigan in last night’s 5-0 Capital One Cup thrashing, according to Sky Sports.
The meeting was the clubs’ first since last season’s FA Cup final, where the Latics emerged as shock 1-0 winners at Wembley before a 4-1 defeat to Arsenal condemned them to relegation just days later, and City made amends with a one-sided scoreline on this occasion, with Jovetic in particularly fine form against the Championship side.
The Montenegro international arrived at the club this summer for £24m from Fiorentina, and showed his quality with two strikes at the Etihad Stadium.
The 23-year-old had endured a difficult start to life in England with some injury problems delaying his debut, but he has spoken of his happiness since moving to the club and his desire to keep playing well and scoring goals for the team.
“I am so happy for this victory and my goals,” he said. “The team played very good. For my first goal Micah Richards did everything and I just put the ball in the goal.
“I am so happy and I hope we are going to continue this way. I feel very well here, from my first day they accepted me very well.
“It was a bit difficult for me because I came last and I was injured. When they played the first games I was doing preparation.
“Now I feel much better and I hope playing more I am going to show much more.”
Jovetic had scored 27 goals in the last two seasons in Serie A, and was a wanted man this summer, with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Juventus all chasing the talented forward before City eventually snapped him up.
