Sulley Muntari is determined to lead Portsmouth into Europe this season.
"Last season they lost out in the last day and the squad is much stronger now. Sylvain Distin has really impressed me, he is big and strong and our defence looks very good. We also have new strikers and they will be keen to score lots of goals.
"I have always wanted to play in the Premiership and test myself against the best players in the world. Harry Redknapp has been very patient while trying to sign me and I am grateful to him for giving me this chance.
"There were other teams interested but Pompey was the only team for me. Now I want to repay them by getting the team into Europe."
