Mancini says that Bayernâ€™s French superstar is a wise man.
â€śManchester City? Not ÂManchester City! No!â€ť said ÂRibery after Germanyâ€™s four-time European champions had also been grouped with Villarreal and Napoli. Cityâ€™s only other European Cup Âadventure was ended by Fenerbahce in the qualifying round 43 years ago.
â€śI saw Riberyâ€™s reaction â€“ and I think he is a clever man,â€ť said the City boss, who first faces Napoli at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.
â€śIt is so strong that there is a chance we could finish top and a chance we could finish in fourth position.
â€śThe aim for us, first of all, is to qualify for the Âsecond stage.
â€śThat will be very difficult in itself, but if we get there then we can think Âseriously about what we can achieve.â€ť
