Manchester City assistant boss Brian Kidd believes the time for celebrating their first title in 44 years is over.

So, whilst Roy Hodgson decided to axe his England pre-Euro 2012 training camp in Spain partly due to the extended commitments of Roberto Mancini's men, Kidd is happy to begin looking forward. He recognises the fact City's players now have that gold badge on their sleeve that confirms their status as top dogs, everyone else will be out to remove it.

Kidd said: "It is no good settling for (winning) the championship. You have got to be hungry, you have got to go on and you have got to want more. The fans enjoyed it but, on the Monday morning, we started again."
