Man City defender Sandler sets his season targets

Manchester City defender Philippe Sandler admits he wants regular football this season.

Sandler featured in yesterday's preseason friendly win against Barnsley.

Speaking on getting back among the action, the Dutch defender said: "I feel good. In the beginning it was a bit tough just for my body because we've only played one game so it's just getting into it again but, yeah I think we did okay. We played well, sometimes a bit sloppy, but in the end it's a good result against a good opponent.

."I feel like we're getting stronger every day. We're training well, it's good to get these kind of games in because a training session is different than a game and you need games to be fit for the season.

"It's good, the best thing about football is playing games so I like it."

He added: "The target is to play as many games as possible, if it's here or somewhere else I don't know but I just need to play as many games [as possible]. I've been injured for a long time now so I need to see where it is, but as long as I play.

"It's been a long time so to be back playing with the guys is the best feeling, so I'm really happy."
