Sunderland winger Johnson holds no Man City grudge

Sunderland winger Adam Johnson insists he holds no grudge against former club Manchester City.

Despite falling out with ex-City boss Roberto Mancini over his lack of opportunities, he holds no grudges.

He played 97 times in two-and-a-half years there and said: "I loved it there.

"It's a great club and but for the circumstances, I'd still be there.

"You want to win medals and I did that but I was disappointed the way it ended. I was not asking to play every week - I knew I couldn't - I just asked to play one in four, simple as that.

"I'd do it all over again, having that chance to play for City, the way they're going. I'd never change it.

"The way the club was fun, the way I was looked after, I couldn't fault them. I just wanted my fair share and to have a manager who had trust in me."
