Milner not surprised by duo

Published Add your comment

James Milner insists he is not surprised to see Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez still at Manchester City as they prepare to defend their Barclays Premier League crown.

Both players were at times last season linked with moves away from the Etihad Stadium, with each of them having their own clashes with manager Roberto Mancini. However, both played their part in City's dramatic title triumph and remain in the north-west as they prepared to resume against Southampton.

Despite all the speculation surrounding the likes of Balotelli and Tevez, England midfielder Milner fully expected them to remain with City. He told Five Live's Sportsweek programme: "I'm not surprised, no. They're both top-class players along with many others we are lucky enough to have in the squad."
