New signing targets Eastlands return

 New signing targets Eastlands return

Dundee United's latest signing Filip Mentel has targeted an instant return to his former club Manchester City in the Europa League.

The 20-year-old goalkeeper signed a three-year contact at Tannadice this week and is already keenly anticipating the European adventure that awaits his new side.

"The club have great facilities and I had been watching their progress so it is a team with plenty of potential," he told the Press and Journal. "I followed their results since my trial and watched the Scottish Cup final.

"I felt like a supporter, it was brilliant to watch the players lift the cup because they had all been so good to me when I was here on my trial.

"The club has Europe to look forward to so that will be a big thing for everyone," he continued. "I`d love to get Manchester City in the competition - and beat them.

"The first task will be to get into the group stages so we`ll have to wait on the draw and take it from there."

Mentel earlier turned down an approach for his services from Polish side Legia Warsaw and will contest a starting place with his countryman Dusan Pernis this season.
