Aleksandar Kolarov: Happy at Man City

Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov has pledged his commitment to the club after being linked with a move away from the Etihad.

The 27-year-old Serbia international was strongly linked with a move away from City during the summer transfer window, with Juventus credited with an interest in the full-back.

However, Kolarov insists he has no plans to quit City and is focused on fighting for his place in Manuel Pellegrini's side.

"There were a lot of talk about Juventus but I never said I wanted to go," Kolarov told The Sun.

"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.

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

City kick-off their UEFA Champions League campaign next week against Viktoria Plzen and Kolarov admits they are looking to make an impact in Europe this term after crashing out at the group stages in the last two seasons.

"That competition is important for us," added Kolarov. "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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
