Otamendi: We deserved victory

Nicolas Otamendi celebrated his first City goal with another man-of-the-match display in the 2-1 win over Norwich.

The Argentine defender thought he’d scored in the 2-1 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in September, only for officials to award the goal to Martin Demichelis.

But there was no doubt about this effort as the former Valencia defender powered a towering header home from a Kevin De Bruyne corner to put the Blues on the way to a hard-fought win over the Canaries.


“I’m really, really happy that we won this game and that we played well and obviously I’m really pleased I scored my first goal for City,” said Otamendi.

“I heard about the ‘fight to the end’ spirit we have here before I arrived, but in all honesty, it’s just a pleasure for me to be playing for this club.

“We are a group of players who work really hard and it’s true, we never give up and today we got our reward for that belief.

“This was a tough game but I think we were good value for the three points and it would have been tough to have come away with only a draw so we are pleased.”
