Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has again expressed frustration seeing Danny Sturridge now with Chelsea.

Mancini has been linked with plans of trying to lure Sturridge back to his former club.

"Last year, when he came with Bolton Wanderers, I asked him why he had left Manchester City. He did not know. I know Sturridge is good, I often see him play," said Mancini.

"If I had the chance, I would probably have tried to save him, but now he plays for Chelsea, we cannot do anything about it. I'm sure he's one of the best young players we had here.

"It was not difficult to see that Sturridge would be a good player. It's weird, because he started in Manchester."< /q>
