Stevan Jovetic: Looking to get his hands on silverware

Stevan Jovetic: Looking to get his hands on silverware

The Montenegrin forward was heavily linked with some of Europe's top clubs this summer prior to completing a switch to the Etihad Stadium from Fiorentina.

He has joined a star-studded squad at City, and one that is expected to challenge for top honours on multiple fronts in 2013/14.

Jovetic claims it is that expectation which convinced him to link up with the Blues, with their a desire on his part to ensure that the club get back on the trophy trail in Manuel Pellegrini's first season in charge.

The 23-year-old told the Daily Mail: "There were other offers, other interest in England, but I don't want to name the clubs. City were quick in the way they moved for me and that proved they wanted me a lot.

"They are playing to win the Premier League. They are playing in the Champions League. They have a very good team and I hope I will be winning some trophies here.

"That's important. I was in Florence for five years, but I won nothing."

He added on where he sees himself fitting into a new-look City side: "I don't feel any pressure.

"I know about how great (Carlos) Tevez and (Sergio) Aguero are as players. They are two fantastic players, but all I can do is my best. Replacing Tevez will be a massive task. But I will just give 100 per cent and try to fill those shoes in the best possible way.

"Obviously it depends on the tactical system, but I like to either play on the left-hand side cutting in or just behind the front striker, playing as a second striker. We will see."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
