Jo is convinced Manchester City can compete for the Premiership title.

"It's an exciting time to be playing for the club - the signing of Robinho has made it clear to all of Europe this club will compete with the best," Jo told ZOO magazine.

"Our new owners have made it obvious what they want to build here.

"We have to look at a Champions League place first and then go from there. This club will win the Premier League.

"The owners have already set that target, but I think to win it this season might be a little bit early."
