Villarreal new boy Nihat Kahveci has spoken excitedly about his expectations for the forthcoming campaign after completing his move from Real Sociedad.
The Turkey international striker has joined a talented Villarreal outfit aware that he must perform to his best if he is to secure regular playing time.
Nihat has proven a prolific goalscorer during his time in Spain with Sociedad and will look to replicate such success at his new employers.
''We will discard nothing this season because I believe that this club is able to play for all,'' said Nihat.
''I am impressed by the level of this team. I think it will not be easy to challenge for the title but I am prepared to fight.
''My challenge in training is to demonstrate to the coach my confidence in myself.''
Nihat, like any good striker, concedes that he will be judged on his goals and he is already looking forward to etching his name on the scoresheet.
''I am a forward and I want to score many goals,'' he conceded.
''The decision (whether he plays) is the coach's because I am disposed for the team.
''For me a problem does not exist.''
