New Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero has confirmed that he will not be satisfied with a place on the bench this season, reports Sky Sports.

Caballero arrived at the Etihad Stadium recently from Málaga CF for a reported £6 million and has warned England international Joe Hart that he has come to take his place.


“Joe is a fantastic goalkeeper, but I've come to play. I want to try and take my opportunity,” said the 32-year-old Argentinian. “It will be difficult, yes, but City are a big club and it's a big opportunity. I want to try in every way I can to play.”


City boss Manuel Pellegrini has previously worked with Caballero when he was head coach at Málaga, and the goalkeeper confirmed that the presence of Pellegrini in the City dugout was a major factor in his decision to make the move to England.


“It was a crucial part of me coming to City knowing him from before and having played for him,” Caballero confirmed. “He was a very important figure in me coming to Manchester City.”


Caballero also insisted that Pellegrini had not made him any promises about the amount of game time he would receive for the Blues. “He hasn’t given me any promises, no, I only know that he wanted me. I came here for the best opportunity for my career,” said Caballero. “I know the situation now but I will fight to play. The decision will be down to the coach, the boss.”


Caballero began his senior career with Buenos Aires giants Boca Juniors before moving to Spain, initially with Elche before joining Málaga. He made 117 league appearances in his spell on the Andalusian coast between 2011 and 2014.


He has made a number of impressive appearances already in pre-season friendlies for City with Hart being rested following England’s World Cup campaign.
