Aalborg striker Shelton convinced Man City will become European power

Aalborg striker Luton Shelton is convinced UEFA Cup opponents Manchester City are destined for big things.

The former Sheffield United attacker said: "City are a very good team with a lot of money and a lot of good new players.

"But when you come up against teams with a lot of money it inspires you to do better. You try that extra bit harder to beat them. For us, though, a good result will be a draw and a goal, that will give us the opportunity to win the game in the second leg at home.

"City seem to have a lot of money, so you want to try harder, as hard as possible. They have a great team and they are starting to blend and get better, so we know it will be hard.

"But this club has done well against British opposition already in the Champions League before I joined.

"Before I came they had already produced draws at Old Trafford against Manchester United, and they had also beaten Celtic.

"But City are slowly getting it together, they have spent an awful lot of money to buy quality players and that is obviously a concern for us.

"There will not be many of the team I played against in the FA Cup last season still in the team now."
