City on Guidetti:

Widely regarded as the brightest young striking talent in Swedish football, John Guidetti joined the Blues as a 16-year-old after impressing then-manager Sven-Goran Eriksson in 2008.

Born in the Swedish capital of Stockholm, Guidetti spent significant periods of his childhood in Kenya, where he would play street football outside Nairobi. His father would drive him to the Ligi Ndogo Academy, where it was obvious the young striker was a cut above the rest.

Upon his family's return to Sweden, he signed for IF Brommapojkarna before making the move to Manchester. A prolific 13 goals in his first 13 games for the City Under-18s, a hat-trick in his reserve team debut and a brief loan return to IF Brommapojkarna continued the striker's footballing education.

Guidetti made his City debut on 22 September 2010 when selected in the starting line-up for the League Cup third round tie away to West Bromwich Albion. A one month loan spell to Burnley followed, in which he scored one goal in five appearances before returning to his parent club for the remainder of the season, where he would continue his impressive form for the EDS.

On 9 July 2011, Guidetti signed a three-year contract extension with the Blues and embarked on his most successful season to date. A year-long loan spell at Eredivisie club Feyenoord was arranged, and the promising Swedish star was given the opportunity to shine. With 20 goals and eight assists in his 23 games for the Dutch team, Guidetti became a firm fan favourite and instant hero, his goals guiding Feyenoord to a surprise second place finish and to a Champions League third round qualifying position.

A phenomenal scoring record, including hat-tricks against FC Twente, Ajax and Vitesse propelled Guidetti to the national stage, making his international debut in February 2012 as a half-time substitute versus Croatia.

Injury in mid-April unfortunately prevented the starlet from taking part in his country's Euro 2012 campaign as he failed to recover in time.
