Man City boss Mancini eager to welcome back Toure brothers

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits he's happy Ivory Coast are out of the African Cup of Nations.

One bonus for City from the weekend was that Ivory Coast were beaten in the quarter-finals of the African Nations Cup.

Midfield talisman Yaya Toure and his brother Kolo could now be available for the Saturday evening trip to Southampton.

Mancini said: "I am sorry for Yaya and Kolo but I hope they come back very angry and they can play well for us."
