Yaya Toure thirsty for Manchester City success

The 30-year-old midfielder aims to build on his Premier League opening day performance and insists his team are ready to dominate their opponents after a forgettable 2012-13

Manchester City’s Yaya Toure hopes he can remain in top form this season and believes his side are well poised for success under Manuel Pellegrini.

The Ivorian began the Premier League campaign in style on Monday evening, netting from a free-kick in City’s 4-0 demolition of Newcastle at the Etihad Stadium.

“I hope I can continue to score important goals for the team and I think this year is going to be a good one for us,” he told the Manchester Evening News.

City are looking for a resurgence under Pellegrini following a disappointing performance in defence of their league title last term, and Toure sees the proper motivation present for the club to prosper.

“This year we want to do the job,” he added. “We want to work hard, keep it going, make it as difficult as possible for our opponents and try to be better and stronger.

“It’s important for me and the club. I know how much everyone desires success and that our fans only want to see one Manchester club profit this season.”
