Hamann confident of big season under Man City boss Hughes

Didi Hamann is confident of a successful season under new Manchester City boss Mark Hughes.

The German midfielder told City's website: "It's always an exciting time of the year, pre-season, a few players come in and others go.

"We've had a change of management as well and everybody wants to battle for a place. If we get a few more players in that'll increase the battle.

"Last season was a big improvement on the season before, we finished ninth, but probably had the chance to finish in the top six or seven until April.

"But with a few new players hopefully we can improve again from last season and I think everybody will be happy."
