No rest for City as squad jets out to the Big Apple for American end of season tour

Just 18 hours after losing 3-2 at home to Norwich in their final league game of the season, Manchester City arrived at the airport this morning to jet off to America for their end of season tour.

City will spend a week in the USA, playing Chelsea on Thursday in St Louis and again on Saturday at the famous Yankee Stadium in New York.

The squad arrived wearing Nike clothing on the first day of the club's six-year kit deal, which is worth up to £12million a year.

After Roberto Mancini was sacked last week, caretaker manager Brian Kidd is in charge and was in a jovial mood this morning as he joked to the waiting photographers: 'Don't worry lads, we're getting Mario back next year.'


Kidd was also pictured carrying a cup - possibly for his tea or coffee on the flight - along with his luggage.

To be fair, it's the only cup in sight at Manchester City this season.
