Manchester City assistant coach Brian Kidd expects Roberto Mancini to remain in charge next season.

Kidd has likened Mancini to Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

He told BBC Radio Manchester: "The boss has done terrific with the way he's adapted to the Premier League and the success he's brought to Manchester City. He's put silverware on the sideboard.

"Every manager has different styles and different ways and he's not dissimilar to [Manchester United manager] Sir Alex Ferguson. He's not afraid to make big decisions, he's passionate and he can handle big players."
