Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini cannot disguise the fact his players have hugely underachieved in the Champions League but has vowed to bounce back.
City's dismal campaign in Europe's elite competition came to an underwhelming conclusion with a 1-0 defeat at Borussia Dortmund. It left them bottom of Group D with just three points - the worst return by an English side in Champions League history - and without even the consolation of a place in the Europa League.
Mancini said: "I think that we had a difficult group. It was (also difficult) last year but we had also a good team. We had a good team and we got only three points - this is not good for us."
