Sven Goran Eriksson insists he is happy to have returned to management after a year out of the game.
Eriksson was linked with a number of different clubs after he stepped down as England boss at the end of the World Cup, but did not take another job until being appointed by Manchester City in July.
He has been quick to make his mark at Eastlands, signing eight new players in little over a month.
The Swede still intends to bolster his squad further, but is pleased with the work he has already done and is looking forward to the season ahead.
"I like it very much here and I hope I will like it even more in May," he told the club's official website. "It's good and for me personally coming back to football it's great.
"We have done a lot of deals now and I suppose we haven't finished yet.
"It's good to be back even if it has been a hectic few weeks.
"The preparation we've done has been very good. We've been very lucky with very few injuries, even if now (Andreas) Isaksson has a long-term injury."
Mpenza ruled out
Eriksson has confirmed that Emile Mpenza will not be fit for Saturday's game against West Ham as he continues to struggle with a leg muscle injury.
But the Belgian could be available for City's first home game against Derby in midweek.
Eriksson said: "Emile will start training with us on Sunday and hopefully be ready for the Wednesday game.
"He will not take part in Saturday's game."
