Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic is excited about the chance of playing in his side’s FA Cup final against Wigan.

Nastasic – who joined City from Fiorentina for 12 million pounds in the off-season – has made a terrific start to life in England, making 29 appearances in all competitions throughout the campaign.

The 20-year-old has shown maturity beyond his years and wants to win his first trophy with City against Wigan on Saturday.

“I’m quite philosophical about it. I know people say we are favourites but we are aware that Wigan are a good team,” Nastasic told the Daily Star.

“They have nothing to lose and the burden of expectation is on us. But it’s like any game. I want to win and my team-mates feel the same.

“As a small kid I watched a lot of finals and I’m aware of its history and tradition. Being part of it now myself means a great deal. The final is not over (though). Definitely.”
