Manchester City's Nicolas Otamendi "happy" with goalless result in derby

Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi says that he is "happy" to have played out a goalless draw against derby rivals Manchester United.

Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi has claimed that he is "happy" to have come away with a point against local rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The two sides played out a goalless draw, the first between the rivals since November 2010.

"I am happy," FourFourTwo quotes Otamendi as saying. "This is one of the games that I always want to play. I was happy to be on the field. We couldn't get the victory but I am still happy.

"We weren't just great in defence but we were organised in all aspects of the team. We secured an important point and it's important as well that we didn't lose."

City sit at the top of the Premier League table, but are equal on points with second-placed Arsenal.
