Vieira: Man City attack as good as any in Europe

Patrick Vieira reckons Manchester City's attack is a match for any team in Europe.

Patrick Vieira reckons Manchester City's attack is a match for any team in Europe.

Even with Emmanuel Adebayor enduring an horrific time at the African Nations Cup, Roberto Mancini still has Carlos Tevez, Craig Bellamy, Roque Santa Cruz and British-record signing Robinho to choose from.

Little wonder Vieira feels that as an attacking force, City are inferior to no-one.

"There are so many big names here," said the former Arsenal skipper.

"When you look around Europe I don't know if any other club has five big names like that who can score goals at any time during a game.

"It gives you so much confidence when you go onto a pitch knowing you have all these players. That is what you need to win games."
