Man City hero Hamann: City players embarrassing

Former Manchester City midfielder Didi Hamann says City's players are an 'embarrassment' after this season's Champions League flop.

City have been accused of failing to earn their big wages by Hamann.

He told the Daily Mail: "Sometimes if you pay these players big wages it takes the edge off them.

"This is not the first time this has happened to City. Anyone can have a bad game but if you have six bad games in Europe - like they did last year - and then six more this season then you have to question their will to win.

"Have they got the will to go the extra yards for their team mates? Too often, if it gets tough, they don't want to go the extra yard. If you do that in the Champions League you get found out.

"It's a tough group but this borders on embarrassing, to get so few points.

"City really don't have the conviction to play in this league. They had 14 international players used during this game. These are the players the manager wanted. You expect better performances than this.

"The gulf between them and Dortmund looked very big."
