MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 21 – Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is determined to help the club become bigger than local rivals Manchester United.
The 33-year-old’s current contract at the Citizens expires at the end of the season, but he remains motivated to claim another Premier League title at the club.
The Ivorian admitted that it will be a massive task to win the title this season, with so many teams still in the running, but he believes City have what it takes.
“When I signed for City, I came to this club to make history. I want this club to change, I want this club to be bigger than United. I know it’s going to be a lot of work, but that’s my dream,” Toure told reporters, according to ESPN FC.
“I have been lucky to play at big clubs – Barcelona, Olympiakos – those teams were always used to being champions. But City, it was something different, something changing and I am happy now.
“Every single year we are always involved in the title race. Even though we lost, and something changed or something was bad, the following year the owner put more money into the club and got better players to make it better. That’s what I like, the challenge, I love a challenge.
“I want to make something very important. I already won two Premier League titles and I want more than that, another new story. What we are seeing is the Premier League is so tough, this year it’s going to be tougher than any other years.”
