Manchester City playmaker Samir Nasri has admitted the hunger is stronger than ever in the squad to win more silverware following Sunday’s 3-1 Capital One Cup final win over Sunderland.
City found themselves a goal behind after a fine finish from on-loan Black Cats forward Fabio Borini at half-time, but goals from Yaya Toure, Nasri and Jesus Navas ensured the trophy was heading back to the north west and not the north east on Sunday.
City are still technically on course to complete the quadruple this season, with the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup titles all still up for grabs.
It would take a brave person to back manager Manuel Pellegrini and his men to overcome a two-goal deficit against Barcelona at the Camp Nou in their last-16 Champions League second-leg but already in the group stages City scored three goals at the Allianz Arena against the European champions Bayern Munich, so that will give them hope.
More likely this season is a domestic treble, however, with the club at 2.55 to win the Premier League, but France international Nasri has not given up hope of making it an historic clean sweep, in what would be a remarkable campaign in Pellegrini’s first term in charge.
Nasri told Sky Sports: “We are going to compete for the league, the FA Cup and we are going to try to make something happen in Champions League even if it’s going to be difficult, but I hope this cup is going to bring confidence to the team and we will fight to end.”
