Nigel de Jong has hailed the changes made in recent years at champions Manchester City.

The midfielder says the club was in a state of "mayhem" when he first arrived.

"I saw the club change from complete mayhem at the training facilities into a real top club, and that's great to see," he enthused.

"It's part of the job that I occasionally warm the bench. We have a squad rotation system. I prefer to play all games, but it's all about the team.

"We eventually won the title, so it was worth it."
