Man City's Ball: Eriksson wants to silence critics
Manchester City fullback Michael Ball admits manager Sven Goran Eriksson is eager to prove pundits wrong after his time as England coach.
Ball said: "The manager wants to prove to everyone what a good manager he really is.
"He knows people are waiting for him to fail. But that won't happen with his club track record.
"I'm still getting to know the new guys' names - but they're all looking good in training."
