New Baggies winger rues missed opportunity.
New West Bromwich Albion winger has explained his excitement at getting his career back on track in the Midlands but claims his only regret is not being able to show Manchester City fans what he is truly capable of, the Mirror reports.
Sinclair joined City from Swansea City last summer in a £6 million deal but made just a handful of appearances over the course of an unhappy season at the Etihad, with injury only serving to highlight his frustration.
He has now joined Albion on loan with the view to turning the deal permanent next summer with coach Steve Clarke already hailing him as ‘a breath of fresh air’.
And the 24-year-old also admitted that he couldn’t wait to get started, but admitted that not being given the chance to prove himself to the City faithful had been bothering him.
“I have been on loan at several different clubs. Coming here shows how much I want to play. It shows by the amount of times I’ve been on loan how much I want to play football,” he said.
“I just wasn’t getting game time at Manchester City. It was frustrating. As a player you want to be at a top team.
“You get so frustrated when you are building yourself up to play and then don’t.
“But there are world-class players at Manchester City and was going to be difficult to break in. But what was more frustrating was that I didn’t get the chance to show the fans what I was about.
“I’m now going to enjoy my football and concentrate on being happy. I’ve settled in well here at West Brom and hopefully I can kickstart my career here.
“I like the way West Brom play. I don’t see it as a come down at all. It’s better playing for West Brom than being on Manchester City’s bench.
“I’m excited. I haven’t been like this for a whole season and hopefully I can start on Sunday against Swansea.”
