Manchester City assistant coach Brian Kidd is convinced they have the best squad in the country.

Winger Jesus Navas plus strikers Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic flew to Hong Kong from England to meet up with their team-mates, who had jetted in separately from the first leg of the club's tour in South Africa.

Kidd said: "They look very exciting players. They look really talented and obviously will make an impact."

Frontmen Negredo and Jovetic will fill the gaps left by Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli while Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko are still at the club.

Kidd said: "In the Premier League and Champions League you need four forwards so you can alternate. I wouldn't swap our squad for any in the Premier League."
