Caicedo ponders life away from Eastlands

Published Add your comment

Manchester City striker Felipe Caicedo is looking for a fresh start with Sporting Lisbon after dropping down the pecking order at Eastlands.

The summer arrivals of Emmanuel Adebayor, Carlos Tevez and Roque Santa Cruz mean the Ecuador striker's first-team chances are likely to be limited and after interest from Sporting the 20-year-old is keen for a move to Portugal.

"My objective is to play and to demonstrate that I can triumph in Europe," Caicedo told "City have many forwards who have arrived this summer and they have complicated my presence."

He added: "For me it is difficult to get in the starting XI at City and the opportunity to go to Sporting would be a personal challenge to me."
