Didi Hamann is ready to fight for his place at new-look Manchester City.
"We have a few midfielders now but it does not worry me. Whoever comes in, I will fight for my place and I will be ready," he told the club's website.
"I have never feared competition and I won't this season either.
"I didn't play well enough last year but I have had a good pre-season, with no injuries, and I am looking forward to Saturday."
