Edin Dzeko has raised questions over his future by insisting he has done enough in his time at Manchester City to warrant a regular first-team place.

Dzeko was in and out of the Manchester City side as they won the Premier League title this season, but did grab 14 league goals, including the crucial equaliser against QPR on the final day of the campaign.

Although he has been linked with a move to Serie A champions Juventus, Dzeko has hinted he would be happy to stay and fight for his place at the Etihad Stadium.

He told Sky Sports: "[The competition for places is] not worrying me because I think I've shown that I can play at Man City and that I deserve to play. I've scored some very important goals. I'm still at Manchester City. For Man City I'm not thinking about my future. I'm just thinking about the games against Ireland and Mexico [for Bosnia].

"The coach decides who plays and I respect that. I always tried to do my best all season, even when I didn't play. At the end I scored a goal, maybe one of the most important goals in City's history, and I'm so proud of that."
