Man City coach Kidd: No wilting flowers in Mancini squad

Manchester City coach Brian Kidd admits manager Roberto Mancini wants victory over Europa League opponents Juventus.

The weight of expectation will be on City, for whom Jerome Boateng could make his first start.

"Pressure comes with the territory," said Kidd. "Quite rightly, the expectation is there.

"But everybody is up for it. Nobody is a wilting flower at this club.

"We all know the demands. That is how it should be.

"With this particular competition, the boss wants first place in the group. He won't take anything less."
