Joleon Lescott insists that ex-teammate Edin Dzeko is relishing taking on former club Manchester City as Inter Milan attempt to emulate Tottenham to deny them a treble.

The veteran striker comes up against his former side at the Ataturk Arena on Saturday night eight years after leaving the Etihad. Dzeko, a 127-time Bosnian international, enjoyed a hugely successful spell in Manchester.

His 72 goals over four-and-a-half seasons after joining from Wolfsburg helped City to two Premier League crowns, the FA Cup and the League Cup. He brought his stint with the club to a close in 2015 as he joined Italian giants Roma.

Now with their domestic rivals Inter, Dzeko has continued his trophy-laden career. Signed as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku in the summer of 2021, he has claimed back-to-back Coppa Italia titles.

The striker has also been key to the Nerazzuris run to their sixth Champions League final appearance. He leads the way on the clubs goalscoring front in Europe with four goals to his name.
