Willy Caballero "working hard" for Manchester City chance

Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero reveals that he is "working hard" for a chance to replace Joe Hart as the club's first-choice keeper.

Willy Caballero has revealed that he is "working hard" for his chance to feature in goal at Manchester City.

The goalkeeper joined the Premier League champions from Malaga in the summer, but has spent the start of the season on the bench behind Joe Hart.

The Argentine told the Manchester Evening News: "It's about working hard and well for the opportunity. If not in the league, then in the cup, in whatever game, and keep trying to be ready. I need to play week-on-week and for this I think I'm ready.

"The most important thing for the player is you have one opportunity to go to the big club and Manchester City is a big club in the world at the moment. It's most important for a player to play for a title and a trophy.

"When I think of a change in club, City was a very good opportunity for me and my life and career. I worked two-and-a-half years with [Manuel] Pellegrini and it is important for the player to know the staff, the way to work, day-to-day, to prepare for the match and I think he's a really good coach."

Hart has start the majority of City's Premier League matches since taking over from Shay Given in 2010.
