Manchester City star confident of historic double

Published Add your comment

Aleksandar Kolarov has promised to help Manchester City to European glory, after stating he will stay at the club.

The former Lazio man has been strongly linked with moves away from the Etihad in recent months, after losing his left-back slot to Gael Clichy.

Serie A champions Juventus have been formally connected with a move for the full-back, but Kolarov has signalled his intent to remain at City for the foreseeable future at least.

"There has been a lot of talk about Juventus but I’ve never wanted to go, he said.

"I have two more years of contract at City, so I’m focused on working hard in training and, when I have the chance to play, giving my best."

The 27-year-old also stated his desire to continue to win things with the Citizens, with the Champions League being top of his list of priorities.

"I am happy at City so now we’ll see what happens. I am a professional and I will be looking to win something this year."

When asked about his side's credentials when it came to winning Europe's elite competition, Kolarov said: "That competition is important for us."

"Last year was not good but now we’ve a good group and we can go through.

"Pellegrini did very well in the Champions League at Villarreal and Malaga. He has experience and that will be good for us."

The Serbian international has found game-time limited of late, and it will be interesting to see if he remains eager to stay in Manchester if he continues to be excluded from the starting eleven.
