Darius Vassell has again pledged his support to Manchester City manager Sven Goran Eriksson.

"It has been a good season," Vassell said. "We played almost out of our shells - better than what we had expected - at the start of the season. Towards the end we failed to keep it up, but we were still pleased with the season as a whole.

"I enjoyed playing under the manager, I always have done and I'm sure the other players would say the same."
