Mancini welcomes selection headache

As Samir Nasri becomes the latest addition to the wealth of attacking talent at Manchester City, Roberto Mancini is not worried by the selection headache that now awaits him.

Along with Nasri - who is expected to complete his move today - City have the likes of James Milner, Adam Johnson, David Silva, Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli, Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero at their disposal - an abundance of top-class options, you could say.

Tactfully managing these egos is not a problem for Mancini, however, and believes all of the above will be given opportunities to prove their worth this season.

"It is no problem for me," he told the official City website.

"The problem is if you don't have good players.

"For the manager it is not easy because all the players want to play every game.

"But when you play in four competitions and have a match every three days, there is space for everyone.


"Sometimes it is important that you rest. It is impossible to play a top game every three days.

"And the Champions League is very hard. It is different from the Europa League.

"For this we need a good team, with good players and a good mentality."

City have started the new season in, perhaps, uncustomary free-flowing style, with wins over Swansea and Bolton reaffirmed their credentials as genuine title contenders.

Mancini's side currently sit top of the tree, and will have the chance to reinforce their position by beating Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
