Nolito hints at Celta Vigo return

Manchester City winger Nolito has admitted he would like to return to Celta Vigo in the future despite only moving to England in the summer.

The Citizens, 3.10 to win the Premier League, snapped up Nolito for £13.8million as part of the Pep Guardiola revolution.

The Spaniard has enjoyed a strong start to life at the Etihad Stadium, scoring three goals in nine league appearances.

He has helped City move up to third in the league table but the 30-year-old is still not learning English and concedes he has felt alone at times during his time at the club.

Speaking about his next move, the forward insists he would love to return to Celta Vigo in La Liga.

He told Marca: “I miss Celta a lot. I would like to return. Provided I can, I will return. My adaptation (in England) is going well.

I felt a little alone but in the dressing room we speak a lot of Spanish.

“That is why I chose not to study English – with Pablo Zabaleta, David Silva, Jesus Navas, Sergio Aguero and lots of Spanish-speaking technical staff. “Someday I will have to take the time to do it.”

Nolito is currently on international duty with Spain and is set to play his part in Saturday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Macedonia.

He only made his debut two years ago but has scored six goals in 15 appearances and should play a key role in Russia if Spain qualify.
