Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson insists Rolando Bianchi remains part of his plans.
"I have not fallen out with him and he has not fallen out with me. He is a very polite young man," Eriksson told City's website.
"Almost for sure I would have put him on at the end of the game against Bolton, then Micah Richards got injured, so I couldn't. He will have his chance soon."
