Dzeko: Super-sub tag does my Edin
Edin Dzeko does not want to be known as Manchester City's super-sub but is happy to fit in with whatever Roberto Mancini has planned.
Dzeko is City's leading scorer with six goals this season but four of those goals have come from the bench, including two in Saturday's 2-1 win at West Brom. Platt confirmed Dzeko's match-changing contribution had put him in contention to start Wednesday's Champions League encounter with Ajax. Dzeko, who also scored the winner at Fulham as a substitute, said: "The manager (Roberto Mancini) is there to pick the team and I'm there when the team needs me. "But I was never a super-sub even before I came to Manchester City. I always used to play from the beginning (for Wolfsburg) and I scored a lot of goals - not as a sub. "In the last few games the situation has been like this and I'm just happy to be scoring goals. But I will never be a super-sub, I want to play."
