City on Kolarov:

Aleksandar Kolarov, nicknamed the 'Serbian Roberto Carlos'joined City from Lazio in July 2010. 

Despite playing at left-back, the then-24 year-old Serb came with a reputation for spectacular goals and had been linked with a move to Real Madrid before opting for the Blues.

Born in November 1985 in Belgrade, Kolarov began his career in 2004 at FK Cukaricki Stankom before moving to OFK Beograd in 2006, both in his homeland, Serbia.

In September 2007, after only one season at OFK Beograd, Kolarov was sold to Serie A giants Lazio where he made an instant impression, scoring a 40-yard thunderbolt on his full debut against Reggina.

During his career at Stadio Olimpico, he became renowned for his long-range specials. He is versatile, too, and can slot into midfield if neccessary, where his physical strength and technique make him a useful option.

Kolarov registered 82 appearances in the Serbian SuperLiga and 82 with Lazio in Serie A. He has also picked up valuable experience playing in the Champions League during his time in Italy.

Kolarov was capped twice during Serbia’s 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign, including an appearance in the 1-0 victory over Germany, bringing his total of international appearances to 15 by the end of the tournament.

After claiming his first league title in England in 2011/12, Kolarov made a good start to the 2012/13 season with a series of spectacular set-pieces in the early months of the season.

As the season went on, he increasingly found himself as back-up for Gael Clichy - however, since Manuel Pellegrini was appointed in summer 2013, the Serbian has found first-team opportunities much easier to come by in 2013/14 after making a very good start to the season.

Aleks won his second Premier League title in 2013/14 and was also a Capital One Cup winner as City beat Sunderland 3-1 at Wembley.
