He sounded very practical. During a recent interview with reporters, Manchester City Manager, Roberto Mancini maintained that Togo international Emmanuel Adebayor's chances of staying in the club this season are very low. He however hopes he would find his bearing soon.

"I am sorry for him because he is here and not playing. But he has no chance of playing this season for us. It's important for him that he can find a good solution because he scored a lot of goals last season and he's a top striker.

I hope for him he can find a good solution very quickly." He stated.

The striker scored 14 goals in his first season at the club after his £25 million worth move from Arsenal and was loaned to Real Madrid.

Strikers like Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko have Mancini's green lights.

"I still have confidence in the four strikers. They scored 70 goals between them last season. They will all stay." He defended.
