Robinho eyes top four finish

15 August 2009 01:50
Brazil star Robinho fully expects Manchester City to challenge for a Champions League place this season. Last summer's £32million club record signing believes the players brought to Eastlands by manager Mark Hughes during this close season are good enough to help City break into the top four. City have landed an array of top-quality talent like Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor to complement Robinho and the Brazilian has warned the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool to beware. "The first season was okay because I was settling in, but this year, for me and my team-mates, we have got to take off," he said. "I set targets and now it is no less than 20 goals - and 30 would be fantastic. "I'm confident in the team's ability and my ability to do this. I expect us to be challenging for the Champions League now and next season I expect us to win trophies. "Defenders will have to watch all the players at Manchester City this time. It will not just be about me."
