Alvaro Negredo Admits He Made A Mistake By Leaving Manchester City

share on:

Alvaro Negredo has said his decision to leave Man City after one season was a ‘mistake’ ahead of his return to the Etihad this weekend.

“I started the season well and the fans saw what I could do when I was 100 per cent fit,” Negredo said in an interview with The Sun.

“But from February I suffered from a shoulder injury which I never really recovered from. When you have a niggling injury like that, it stops you showing your best form. And I don’t feel I ever regained the manager’s trust.

The Spain international struggled during his time back in La Liga – netting just 18 times in 74 appearances for Valencia – but is determined to rediscover his scoring touch with Boro and add to his one strike so far this season.

“I’m convinced I can regain my form,” he added. “I have had two seasons where I have not shown my best so you have to be realistic and I am very grateful that Middlesbrough have given me the chance to start again and improve.

“England is a league I’ve always enjoyed and I want to show that better version of myself that you saw seasons ago.”

“So unfortunately things didn’t turn out how I wanted them to. I do think I made a mistake to go back to Spain when I was doing things well in the Premier League.

“But thankfully now I’ve been given the chance to come back and start this other chapter here in England again.”
