The new Manchester city midfielder Jack Rodwell has said that he is extremely happy to sign with the Premier league champions and has said that it is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join a club of this stature. Jack Rodwell has been linked with some of the biggest names in world football like Manchester United and Chelsea in the last few seasons. However, both the clubs have not been able to agree a fee with Everton for the services of the England midfielder. Manchester city managed to nab the player in a £ 15 million deal that will see him join the Premier league champions.

Speaking on the occasion of his unveiling, Jack Rodwell has said that it is a great opportunity to join a club like Manchester city and he feels that he will win a lot of trophies in the future. Jack Rodwell was initially expected to follow Wayne Rooney to Manchester United, but he has signed for the arch rivals Manchester city. There have been doubts that Jack Rodwell will not be getting regular first-team football at Manchester city, but the former Everton player reckons that he has to fight for a spot in the first-team at any club.

“It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I believe in my ability. No matter what squad I go to, I always feel I can add something to it. It will be an exciting place to go, playing with amazing players. It is a chance to win things. They won the league last year and I’m sure they will look to improve on that, especially in the Champions League as well. I’m going to have to be patient but I’m still young,” said Jack Rodwell. Rodwell has said that he is hoping that his injury problems will finally start to disappear.
