Man City's Elano: Maybe I have a little Ronaldinho magic

Manchester City star Elano has played down comparisons with Ronaldinho - which was made by his manager Sven Goran Eriksson last week.

The former Santos midfielder said: "It is a big rap. I'm happy with what he said. But I am not an individual player, I work for the team. I am not at the level of Ronaldinho Gaucho.

"The season in England has begun well for me, but I'm keeping my feet on the ground. My career has benefited from this approach.

"Ronaldinho is a magician, perhaps I have a little bit of this magic."
