San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Mario Manningham is motivated to play his old team, the New York Giants.

Former New York Giants wide receiver, and current San Francisco 49ers receiver Mario Manningham called playing his old team, "a dream," saying:

"Oh man, that's a player's dream -- to go out and beat their old team,"

Manningham spent his first four seasons in New York with the Giants. In 2010 he caught 60 balls for 944 yards and nine touchdowns, but he saw his role reduced last season with the emergence of Victor Cruz. Still, Manningham was a hero in Super Bowl XLVI with his sideline catch that set up the Giants' game-winning score.

Manningham says he's not bitter about the Giants not re-signing him, and that he loves his new home in San Francisco. He said he does not hold a grudge towards the Giants, but he is motivated, adding, "who wouldn't be motivated by playing their old team?"

Manningham has 19 receptions for 186 yards and a touchdown thus far for the 49ers.

The Giants travel to San Francisco to take on the 49ers at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 14.
