Scott Sinclair cannot wait for tomorrow’s match as he travels with the Manchester City to squad to face Real Madrid, Sky Sports reports.
The former England Under-21 international arrived at the Etihad on deadline day, and says that it is this type of game which saw him decide to leave Swansea and join the Premier League champions.
He said: “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%.”
The 23-year-old made his City debut in the 1-1 draw at Stoke on Saturday and has seemingly been brought in to fill the void left by Adam Johnson, who joined Sunderland in the summer.
It is Sinclair’s second chance at the big time, after failing to force his way into the Chelsea team following a frustrating five-year spell between 2005 and 2010.
He was loaned out to six different clubs during his time at Stamford Bridge and eventually decided to join Swansea- where he scored the club’s first-ever Premier League goal in a 3-0 win over West Brom last season.
Sinclair admits he is uncertain whether he can keep his place in the starting line-up for tomorrow’s match, but will just keep working hard to stay in Roberto Mancini’s plans.
“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,” he added.
