Ederson: Man City players determined as ever to win Champions League

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson says the players are looking forward to a new Champions League campaign.

City have been drawn alongside Sevilla, Borussia Dortmund and FC Copenhagen in the group stages.

And ahead of Tuesday's opening Group G clash away to Sevilla, Ederson revealed that the desire to try and secure the one piece of major silverware missing from their collection ran deep amongst the City squad.

“We all work to achieve that goal of winning it. We know the grandeur of the competition and the level of the teams involved," Ederson declared.

“If they are involved in the competition, it's because they are the best teams in Europe. The reality is that only one team can win.

“It's a trophy that we all want to win.

“We have always tried and we haven't managed to win it yet. But every year we are closer and closer to winning it.

“We need to keep working hard and focus on every game to be able to fight for the trophy.

“We have the quality and the capacity to win the only trophy left to add to our cabinet."
