The 26-year-old appeared in all but one of Man City's matches in their Champions League-winning campaign, scoring twice. In a Player of the Match performance in the final, his precisely-executed winning strike clinched the trophy.
“It's a dream. This moment will never happen again,” he said at full time. “All these [City fans have] waited I don't know how many years. They deserve it, we deserve it.”
