Matija Nastasic: The defender has found some great friends at club
Matija Nastasic has revealed that he has adapted to life at Manchester City well following his big money deadline day move.
The Serbian central-defender sealed a £12m move to the Etihad Stadium from Serie A giants Fiorentina and has already made a successful transition to the Premier League.
Nastasic insists he has settled into life in England thanks to help from some of his City team-mates, including Aleksandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko.
"I am very happy that I have immediately found some great friends here," the 19-year-old told Sportske.
"Kolarov is a man of great authority at this club and his words are well respected. He immediately gave me some great advice when I arrived at the club.
"There is also Edin, with whom I get along really great.
"It really helps that I can speak Italian because I don't have any problems in communication with manager Roberto Mancini and striker Mario Balotelli.
"It's so much nicer to be at a club where you don't feel like a stranger. I immediately found a new home at City."
