'If It's Football, It's Vital'

On The Ball

Google language translator


Manchester City defender Michael Ball has defended Robinho's, 'we must find a winning mentality' outburst.

The Brazilian controversially accused his team-mates of a lack of ambition during a tabloid interview last week, however Ball is not disturbed by the comments.

"We are fine with what Robinho said. He has played at one of the best clubs in the world in Real Madrid. The mentality there is that second place is nothing."

He continued...

"I had some of that kind of thinking when I was in Scotland at Rangers when they were battling Celtic and in Holland with PSV when losing the league title by a point was just not good enough for the fans."

"That is exactly the kind of attitude that you want. That kind of thinking breeds confidence and that's where all the players want City to be."


Ball finished off by saying...

"We don't want to be second best to anyone. We want to push to get into the Premier League top four and to start winning trophies."
