Sinclair eager to grace European stage

18 September 2012 08:42

Manchester City's Scott Sinclair says the lure of Champions League football was one of the main reasons behind his switch from Swansea.

Sinclair made his debut for City in the club's 1-1 draw at Stoke City, but does not know if he will hang on to his place for the team's first Champions League group-stage match away at Spanish champions Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Sinclair told Sky Sports: "It's a great draw. I watched the draw and everyone is looking forward to going out to the Bernabeu.

"This is why I came here - to play with the best and be in a world-class team.

"I don't know if I'll play - I've just made my debut and all I can do now is concentrate on the next game, and on training every day, and give 100 percent.

"I am just looking forward to playing any games, to be honest, whether it's my City debut in the Premier League or a Champions League game. All I can do is try to make an impact."
