Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis reveals that he joined the club in order to be part of the first team.

Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis has revealed that he will not settle for a place on the bench at the Premier League club.

The 32-year-old Argentine, who joined City from Atletico Madrid over the summer, made his debut during Sunday's defeat at Chelsea following a spell on the sidelines with a knee injury.

"I have a lot of ambition, and have not come here to take a secondary role," he told the Manchester Evening News. "I want to be part of the team and am confident I will do it.

"The knee feels really good and I feel I am fit and ready to play at Newcastle [United], but it is the decision of the manager."

City travel to Newcastle in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.
