Man City manager Roberto Mancini tells his captain Vincent Kompany to "pay more attention" when tackling.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has told his captain Vincent Kompany to "pay more attention" when tackling.

The Belgian was dismissed for a lunge on Arsenal's Jack Wilshere during last weekend's 2-0 win at the Emirates.

Mancini said: "He's a defender. Sometimes when the defender is under pressure he can do a bad tackle but I think he needs to pay more attention, because this has happened two times.

"We can have a problem if we have another situation like this. I spoke with Vinny and told him to have more attention on his tackles."

The sending-off has since been overturned after City lodged an appeal with the Football Association, meaning that Kompany is available for Saturday's visit of Fulham.
