Reports are out claiming that Vincent Kompany insists Manchester City are determined to deliver in the Champions League this season.
They begin their latest challenge on Tuesday with a testing visit from last season’s runners-up Juventus.
Kompany said: “There is nobody who left the Champions League satisfied last year.
“Okay, we came against the best team in the world in Barcelona, and I guess that made it a little bit easier to understand, but that is not what we want.
“We don’t want to go out to the strongest teams but to compete with them and at least beat them on a regular basis.
“Everything has been so bright and so good so far but, as people have been saying for the last three or four years, as long as we don’t perform and show our quality in the Champions League, as we have in the Premier League, there will always be something left behind that leaves us unsatisfied.
“It is a really important game for us. We have been looking forward to the start of the competition since the disappointing game in Barcelona. Tomorrow is a game everyone is going to be up for.”
