Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists there's no reason for embarrassment after being bundled out of Europe again this season.

City's Champions League campaign was the worst of any English club in the competition's history.

Mancini said: "It can be embarrassing if, when you play, you don't play at 100 per cent.

"But when you do play 100 per cent, you can lose.

"We wanted to try to get in the Europa League because that would have been another competition for us to try to win."
