Man City boss Mancini demands goals from Johnson

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is demanding goals from Adam Johnson.

Last Friday Mancini was critical of Johnson and it is not the first time. The City manager feels he doesn't contribute consistently enough over 90 minutes. And after another laboured display in the 0-0 draw against Birmingham City on Saturday, Mancini made it clear Johnson and his other attacking players must find a way to support Carlos Tevez.

He said: "Adam Johnson is not a defensive midfielder, David Silva is not a midfielder, they are offensive players. But we have this problem from the start of the season; if Carlos Tevez does not score, we don't have another player who can."
