Manchester City morning news: United legends in dig at City, Pellegrini frustrated

A round up of news stories this morning about Manchester City.

Former Manchester United duo Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand have both taken digs at Manchester City.

Scholes questioned the atmosphere at the Etihad last night while Ferdinand questioned stadium extension plans on Twitter.

“When you come here it just doesn't have a European night feel to it. You go to Liverpool, you go to Old Trafford, you go to Chelsea, they have a special feeling for it. I don't think there is here,” said Scholes on ITV.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has blamed carelessness for the club’s draw against AS Roma.

The Chilean was left frustrated as City could only manage a 1-1 draw against the Italians, leaving them with one point from two games.

“Today (Tuesday) we weren't very accurate with our passing and when we lost the ball, maybe we didn't have enough midfielders to cover. But I don't think that was the reason. The main problem was we lost many easy passes,” said the boss.

Former Manchester City defender Maicon believes that Roma should have taken more from the game.

“We deserved something more but a draw here is not bad. We have our feet on the ground. We are doing well but we have to work and continue like so,” said the defender.
