Man City winger Johnson happy to learn from Mancini, Capello

Manchester City winger Adam Johnson says manager Roberto Mancini is similar to England coach Fabio Capello.

The 23-year-old has impressed in his first two international appearances - against Mexico and Hungary - and believes the similar management styles of Mancini and Capello can only help him in the long run.

He said: "They're pretty similar in their approach, I think in some ways the Italian mentality is different to the English attitude.

"There is an emphasis on the tactical side and the shape of the team. Obviously every manager has things they do differently but overall I think they are pretty similar."
