Matija Nastasic reveals that he is hungry for his first taste of success in the FA Cup final.

Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic has spoken of his hunger to claim his first piece of silverware with the Citizens in the FA Cup final.

The youngster, who joined from Fiorentina in the summer, has impressed in his debut campaign for the club.

The 20-year-old is now hoping to round off the season with a final win against Wigan Athletic, though he understands that the pressure is all on his side.

"I'm quite philosophical about it. I know people say we are favourites but we are aware that Wigan are a good team," Nastasic told the Daily Star.

"They have nothing to lose and the burden of expectation is on us. But it's like any game. I want to win and my teammates feel the same.

"As a small kid I watched a lot of finals and I'm aware of its history and tradition. Being part of it now myself means a great deal. The final is not over. Definitely."

Nastasic has made 29 appearances in all competitions for City this season.
