City keeper Steffen: 'We want to lift as many trophies as we can'

Sun 10 January 2021 | 19:05

Manchester City's new goalie, Zack Steffen says they won't scam their FA Cup hunger in spite of the hard contest in the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola's men secured their spot in the fourth round of the tournament in the wake of thrashing

Birmingham City

3-0 on Sunday. 

Bernando Silva's brace in the first quarter of an hour and a strike from Phil Foden in the minute 60 was enough for Cityzens to go through the next round. 

Alongside their advancement in the Carabao Cup last in midweek and with their

Champions League

desire still at its best, City are confronting an inexorably feverish timetable throughout the next few months. 

A slow start to the

Premier League

season contrasted with their adversaries is another intensifying component, alongside Covid-19 undoings for sure. 

However, the USMNT goalkeeper, who has recently gained Guardiola's trust to stand in their goal, is obstinate that City won't dispose of cup rivalries close by their desires to recover their domestic glory. 

"We want to lift as many trophies as we can," the USMNT man was quoted by the club's website. "We want to win as many games as we can, and we want to play as best as we can by playing the best football.

"It was nice to get my first FA Cup match under my belt. I hope to play more cup games as the season goes on so this is an important competition for all of us and one we want to win. We want to lift this trophy."

The 25-year-old Steffen is replacing City's number one following the Brazilian shot-stopper, Ederson's positive test for Covid-19 and concedes he is savoring his run as the top pick.

"That’s our job, to stay focused for 90 minutes. I’m lucky to be part of a team where I can play with the ball and touch the ball with my feet to stay active and involved with the play," he confessed.

"I love playing. I’m really enjoying it and it was great to get out there for a few games. It’s just a shame there were no fans.

"I feel confident and have got into a rhythm, I think the players in front of me have done a great job during these matches and I'm going to keep working hard to get myself out there.

"It’s great to keep another clean sheet and having a run of games has been important to understand how we play better and I definitely feel settled."
