Zabaleta: Players understand expectations at Man City

Manchester City players can feel the pressure of expectations from the club's Arab owners.

City fullback Pablo Zabaleta admits they know the responsibility that goes with the club being owned by Sheikh Mansour.

"Yes we do feel the pressure of all this," said Zabaleta yesterday. "We have a lot of pressure. This season the club and the owners spent a lot of money on new players. The club - and again, the owners - made a big effort. But it's OK because we have quality, too."
