Portsmouth's Distin scoffs: No challenge at Man City

Portsmouth defender Sylvain Distin has mocked his former Manchester City teammates ahead of today's game.

The Frenchman said: "For me one of the problems I had at City was I did not have much competition. Even if I did not play well, I felt I was guaranteed to play the next game. That doesn't keep you alert.

"You need competition to bring you to another level. It was a difficult decision to leave City, but the time was right. Now I love it at Portsmouth."
