Despite his clash with Carlos Tevez, the Etihad chief was all smiles at Carrington yesterday as he questioned why people would think there are problems at City when they look at the Premier League table.
He said: "I thought we are at the top of the table, not on the bottom! I don't think we are in a difficult moment. We have lost only one game.
"United drew against Basel at home. The Champions League is very difficult for every club, even for those with big experience.
"With four games left, we have many chances to get to the next stage. I don't think we will have a problem."
