Mancini warns Man City players to get tough or face Champions League exit

Roberto Mancini has backed his Manchester City players to come good in the Champions League, insisting that their performances so far have been of a decent enough standard to qualify from the group stages, according to the Daily Mail.

City have yet to win in the competition this season, losing a thrilling encounter away to Real Madrid by the odd goal in five having twice taken the lead, and then snatching a draw at home to Borussia Dortmund by virtue of a late Mario Balotelli penalty.


The Mail adds that City have exhibited the most porous defence in the Champions League thus far, in terms of shots conceded, with 50 attempts raining in on Joe Hart’s goal in only two games.


City’s results meanwhile leave the Premier League champions third in Group D, above only Ajax who have yet to pick up a point in the tournament. Madrid meanwhile are top of the pile with six points from their first two games.


Mancini said: “It is frustrating. We are here and every group game is difficult in the Champions League. We should continue our way and if we play like this, we will win.


We don't have experience as a club, but all of our players have Champions League experience. Maybe as a club, we need more experience, but we have good players and that's why we should be in the second stage.
