De Jong: Man City will win silverware this season

Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong admits they expect to win silverware this season.

De Jong, who faces his old Hamburg boss Huub Stevens tonight, believes City are within sight of that elusive trophy he believes will signal an era of unprecedented success for the club.

"We expect to win something this season," said De Jong. "Being the first one for so long, it doesn't really matter which competition it is. Once we have got the first, I expect a few to quickly follow.

"City are not just big in Europe, they are big throughout the world. Everybody is watching us and they're excited to see us play. You can see it in the eyes of the opposition. We are a scalp for teams."
