Football - Success is most important thing - Kidd

Assistant boss Brian Kidd claims Manchester City's players can argue all they want if success continues.

Ex-City striker Emmanuel Adebayor, now at Tottenham, has claimed his former team-mates are likely to turn on each other when things are not going their way.

The comments have added extra spice to the Barclays Premier League clash between the two sides at White Hart Lane on Sunday, a game which could be important in the fight for second place.

But Kidd, fulfilling pre-match media duties on behalf of manager Roberto Mancini, brushed off the remarks from a player who left the champions for Spurs - initially on loan - two years ago.

Kidd said: "You have only got to look at the manager and the squad of players, they don't like losing.

"With respect to Ade, if he has come out with that, Ade has not been around for the last couple of years and the boss has put silverware on the sideboard in that time.

"So I hope they carry on fighting and arguing. If you want a fight and a confrontation, you can have it every day in a football club."
