Bacary Sagna has hailed new Manchester City signing Nolito believing his "superior" technical qualities will make him a success in the Premier League.
The £14million arrival from Spanish side Celta Vigo is Pep Guardiola’s second major City signing following the addition of German international Ilkay Gundogan who joined from Borussia Dortmund on a four-year deal. Nolito spent three seasons at Os Celestes scoring 39 times in 100 La Liga appearances before agreeing to re-join his former manager [he played under Guardiola at Barcelona from 2008-2011, although much of his time was spent with the Catalans’ B side]. Nolito started all four of Spain's matches at Euro 2016, scoring once against Turkey, and his performances caught the eye of new team-mate Sagna: "He's going to bring a lot to the team," he said. "He has some qualities and technique that are superior to other players He has had a very good season and did an excellent Euro with Spain. He signed for a reason and I am very pleased about this."
