Melbourne City recruit Ivan Franjic says his new club has what it takes to win the A-League title.

The 27-year-old, who won the title with Brisbane Roar three times, signed a three year deal with City last month and says his teammates look hungry for success.

"Yeah, obviously we're looking strong, there's a couple more foreigners to come in but yeah, we'll be a good chance to win it (the A-League championship) and we're prepared to go all the way this year," Franjic said.

Franjic only recently began pre-season training and may still be a few weeks off making his debut for his new club.

"It'll be the coaches' decision. I'll be ready but it'll be up to them," he said.

"I don't think I'll be playing the first game but it's an exciting tournament.

"I watched it last year from Russia, so I can't wait and hopefully the boys win next week - which I believe they will - and see who we get in the next draw; hopefully Hume."
