Nedum Onuoha believes he's become a better player for the influx of foreign stars at Manchester City.

He said: "At the beginning of the season, a commentator said I was the Manchester kid with the Brazilian style, which was a nice compliment.

"Quite a few newspapers have been saying that watching City is just like watching Brazil this season.

"They might just be looking for a nice line, but we do have that little bit of flair.

"You might not hear too much Portuguese being spoken in Manchester, but there is a bit of Brazilian style rubbing off around the place."
