Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson says his foreign signings will be stronger next season.

After victory over Bolton, Eriksson revealed: "Some of the foreigners came in the dressing room and said in perfect English 'bloody this and bloody that. All these long balls . . . '. It is hard to play against them.

"I think Elano and all the players we bought last summer will be better next season. They know what it is all about now."
