Kolarov has signed a three year extension to his contract which will see him stay at the club until 2018.
Kolarov told the official City site: “I am very happy and very proud of this new contract. I will give to this club probably the best stages of my football career and I am very happy that I continue with this club which feels now like my home.”
“Last season I played a lot and I think I proved to people in the club that they can believe in me and the result was that I was offered a new contract and I was happy to sign.”
“When we won two trophies last season, I was happy with what we did and I think it’s good for the club and for me that we are here now.”
“I think we can do a lot more things in the future. We’ve won everything in England and I think we can do a lot more in Europe. So we’ll try to repeat what we did in England and try to win something in Europe. The most important thing in football is the result and I think we can do a lot more in the future.”
So we get to see more Christmas messages like this…
