Manchester City morning news: Kompany angry over Moscow decision, Pellegrini: No excuses

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

Vincent Kompany has questioned why Manchester City fans were banned from the game against CSKA Moscow.

The Belgian was left confused as a small group of CSKA fans attended the match when it was meant to be completely behind closed doors.

“It is little things like, there aren't meant to be any fans there, but there are still 500 fans there for [CSKA]. That isn't a problem, but I don't understand where our fans are,” he told Sky Sports News.

Manuel Pellegrini has refused to create excuses for Manchester City’s performance in Russia yesterday.

The City boss watched as his team gave away a 2-0 lead, which leaves them in a difficult position trying to get out of the group.

“I don’t like to give different excuses about what happened. I think we had it all to win and we didn’t,” said the Chilean.

The Metro has claimed Manchester City are interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.

ESPN has suggested that the move is aimed at potentially replacing Yaya Toure.

However, as they are completely different players, that line of theory is questionable.
