Manchester City face Manchester United at the Etihad on Sunday - and former Blue Elano says it will be a "beautiful" occasion.
The Brazilian, who spent two seasons at City and endeared himself to the fans, also reflects on the derbies he played in, including the 1-0 win back in 2007.
"The beauty of these two clubs and their fans who love their team – two teams in a great city," he says.
"But I have to mention the strong City side these days, because City are living a great moment.
"With these two fantastic managers... this will be a beautiful derby."
