Published Add your comment

Owen Hargreaves is looking to kick start his Manchester City career as soon as possible and feels he can make a major contribution to the club quest for trophies this season.

The 30-year-old made his move to the Etihad Stadium on a free transfer after being released by Manchester United earlier this summer after making just 39 appearances in four years at Old Trafford.

The England midfielder joins the likes of Yaya Toure, Nigel de Jong and Gareth Barry to compete for a central midfield birth and Hargreaves is hoping he can be a welcome addition.

"I like to measure myself agains the best and I've always taken on challenges - I left Canada for Germany as a kid, I've left comfortable situations," he said.

"It's a fantastic group of players here, and I hope that I'll be a good addition to these guys to help out."

Before joining City's neighbours United, Hargreaves spent seven years with Bayern Munich who the club have draw in the group stage of the Champions League.


However, the first game in Munich on September 27th may come too soon for Hargreaves, but with plenty of games to go the midfielder knows his chance will come.

"It's important that you get back into a rhythm of playing football, and I haven't done that for a while," he added. "There's tons of games to come this season in various competitions.

"I've never not played in the Champions League, it's pretty much been standard for me every season.

"Bayern is a wonderful club - I had a great time there and won the Champions League. They are going to be tough opposition and it will be an exciting game for the club."
