Jovetic has no regrets leaving 'easier' Premier League

Stevan Jovetic has no regrets about leaving Manchester City for Inter, despite feeling the Premier League is easier to play in than the Serie A.

The Montenegrin forward signed for City from Fiorentina in 2013 for £22million yet became frustrated with a lack of playing time, only featuring in 39 games in all competitions over two seasons.

And the 26-year-old, who has scored four goals in all competitions since joining Inter on an 18-month loan deal in July, believes his move to Italy has tested him in a more difficult league.

"When I was fit they didn't play me, when I scored I went off after a maximum of 60 minutes and it's difficult," Jovetic told Undici.

"I had a normal relationship with [Manchester City manager Manuel] Pellegrini, we never argued.

"It was just that I deserved to play more. I thought that then and I thought that now.

"I like the Premer League. It's easier to play there than in Italy, where there is little space."
