Man City boss Mancini happy with Toure captaincy

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is happy with the leadership of club captain Kolo Toure.

Mancini was quick to hand the captaincy back to the experienced Toure on his return against Portsmouth last weekend and he repaid his manager by turning in a man-of-the-match display.

The Italian told City's website: "Having said that, I want my team to have many captains out on the pitch, but only one player can wear the captain's armband - and that is Kolo.

"He is a very important player for us and a very good leader so I am very happy for him to continue to skipper the team."
