Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure aims to end the season on a high with domestic and European success.

Toure has been part of a City side which has won two Premier League titles as well as tasting FA Cup and Capital One Cup glory.

And after ending last term empty-handed, the Ivorian is hungrier than ever to claim silverware this time around.

Speaking to the Mirror, Toure said:

My ambition is to win the Premier League and Champions League this season.That’s never easy, but we are in with a chance and we need to be confident.

City are currently going through a rough patch and lie in fourth position after last week’s disappointing defeat at the hands of Leicester.

Toure still believes that City can end the campaign on the top of the pile though he acknowledges that competition is fierce this season.

There are many rivals this year. Leicester have surprised everyone and Arsenal have been strong. And don’t forget Tottenham, I think they are dangerous. People don’t talk about them very much for the title but they are a very good team. They will be a big rival. But we still believe we can finish on top.

The former Barcelona man is not merely demanding Premier League success though and says that a club of City’s stature should be competing in for the Champions League crown. The Ivorian believes that is the next step in City’s growth.

He said:

Manchester City have grown so much and the Champions League is very important for the next step.

The people here have believed in our chances for almost a decade since the change of owners. Now we are one of the biggest clubs in Europe. We really do not think we are inferior to other ­candidates in the Champions League.
