Man City boss still has confidence in out-of-sorts Adebayor
The Togo star is still to score this season and rarely looked like breaking his duck against a well organised Juventus team on Thursday night team who did not commit many men forward once Adam Johnson levelled Vincenzo Iaquinta's opener.
But Mancini is just happy to have Adebayor back.
"I wouldn't say it was a frustrating night for him," said Mancini.
"The main thing he was available today after 20 days out.
"I am happy with his performance but what I would like is for Emmanuel to score a goal. We need him to score goals. This is what we are working for."
