The 24-year-old started only two Premier League games last term following a big-money move from Fiorentina, with a succession of hampering the Montenegro forward's chances in the first team.

"I have the manager's confidence and I feel stronger. I hope now the City fans will see the real Jovetic," said the 24-year-old, who also played down suggestions he had sought to depart the Etihad Stadium.
"I never said it was better to leave England. My injury problems are all okay now. I had a three-week rest and after that I started doing the programme that City set for me.
"I feel good and I hope the fans are going to see a lot of things from me. Last year I played well when I was fit. This year, hopefully when I have a good preparation with the team, it's going to be a different story."
Reflecting on his struggles last season, Jovetic continued: "This time last year, the problem was that they [City] finished with the first part of pre-season in South Africa and I was waiting to sign.
"When I arrived they were starting to play matches and I was always behind the rest of the squad.
"I was then with the national team and I wanted to play 90 minutes to get more fitness. That was a mistake because I got hurt and came into the season injured.
"I was always behind and had one injury after another. It was difficult."
