New Man City contract for Sweden’s Guidetti

Swedish striker John Guidetti has pledged his future to Premier League champions Manchester City after signing a new three-year contract.

New Man City contract for Sweden's Guidetti

The highly-rated 20-year-old has yet to make his top-flight debut but made a name for himself with an explosive run of 20 goals in 23 games while on loan to Dutch club Feyenoord last season.

Guidetti, who joined City as a 16-year-old, told the club’s website, ww.mcfc.co.uk, that he is very pleased to stay on:

“I feel really happy of course, it’s a fantastic football club and to sign a new deal is really, really good.

“I’ve been here for a long time and Manchester City are the ones who have helped me grow and develop into the player I am today, so I am very grateful for that and I’ve seen how the club has turned into one of the biggest clubs in the world and it is great to be a part of that.”

Guidetti returned to City after suffering illness towards the end of the last campaign and he is still fighting his way back to full fitness.

“It’s going well – I can run, I can shoot, I can pass, so I am definitely getting there, but we have to be a bit more patient and of course I want to get out there every day, it’s what I long for.”

“Brozovic's Inter Milan and Swedish epidemiologists were informed about the positive test,” an HNS statement said.
   
The player's positive result came two days after defender Domagoj Vida was informed of a positive Covid-19 test after playing the first half of a friendly with Turkey in Istanbul.
   
Apart from Brozovic, 27, one staff member also tested positive.
   
They were both isolated from other members of the national team.
   
After Sweden, Croatia play another Nations League game against Portugal on Tuesday.
   
Croatia, runners-up at the 2018 World Cup, are third in their Nations League group which also includes France, the team that beat them to the World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal and Sweden.
