City must improve quickly - Mancini
- From the section Football
Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says is it imperative that his team improve their Champions League form "quickly" if they are to avoid exiting Europe's elite competition at the group stages for the second season running.
City face German champions Borussia Dortmund at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday hoping to win their first points in Group D after opening their campaign with a 3-2 defeat by Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.
Mancini also rejected the theory that he had lost confidence in Joleon Lescott, after leaving the defender on the bench for last Saturday's match at Fulham.
