Ambitious Caicedo eyes big future

Felipe Caicedo has outlined his ambitions for his future with the Blues.

The 21-year-old Ecuadorian striker, signed from FC Basel in January, has given his first interview since arriving in England and he says,

"I have ambitions of course. In the next four years I want to score goals, win games and trophies with Manchester City.

"I love Manchester City because it is a big club with fanatical supporters, and I would love to give more to the club and the fans."

Having made a steady progression from South America to Europe, Felipe has now made four substitute appearances for City, starting with the derby win at Old Trafford. Being pitched into such an occasion has not fazed him, as he adds:

"I always liked the Premier League because I used to watch it on television in Ecuador. It was always my dream to play at the highest level in football and I always intended to play outside my country."

And as with several of the recent arrivals at the Club, Felipe says the presence of Sven-Goran Eriksson was a major factor in his decision to come here.

"Sven Goran Eriksson was a huge influence in my decision to come and play for Manchester City. In every team you can learn something from somebody and this team is no exception. I’m sure I will learn lots from the coaches, players and especially the manager."
