Manchester City midfielder James Milner: Media 'nonsense' brings squad closer together

Manchester City midfielder James Milner has denied any reports of unrest at the club, and insists that all the players back manager Roberto Mancini.

City have suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats against Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers, and there have been a number of on-field arguments between players.

Emmanuel Adebayor and Vincent Kompany were involved in an argument against Wolves, whilst Milner himself was involved in an incident with Yaya Toure.

However, the midfielder insists that the media attention on the club and manager Roberto Mancini will only make the squad stronger.

"When we see nonsense written in the papers it pulls us closer together," he told reporters.

The story is too old to be commented.
