Roberto Mancini has brought City midfielder Michael Johnson back into the squad for the difficult Europa League assignment at Aris Thessaloniki…
This represents a tremendous boost for Johnno who has battled back yet again from serious injury to a point where he is knocking on the door of a first team start.
Whether or not Mancio should decide to give the box to box 22 year old a run out in Aris’ bog roll streamered, firecrackered cauldron remains to be seen.
In any case, outside of the injured Nigel De Jong and Adam Johnson, a strong squad is airbone for Greece as City bid to be the first rival European side in 42 years to win at the Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium.
City (from): Hart, Given, Taylor, Richards, Zabaleta, Boateng, K Toure, Kompany, Kolarov, Lescott, Wright-Phillips, Vieira, Y Toure, Silva, Barry, Tevez, Dzeko, Balotelli, Jo, M Johnson.
