Gareth Barry has poured scorn on suggestions that all is not well within the City camp.
Boss Roberto Mancini told waiting newsmen at Carrington today that stories about rifts in the dressing room were ‘rubbish’ and the England midfielder echoed that sentiment.
“The truth is that there is a group of players working together, working hard and working for the manager, trying to do the right things,” declared Barry.
“Everyone in that dressing room and that training complex wants to do their best for Manchester City Football Club.”
Barry found himself courting controversy last week when he was caught on a phone camera partying with students on a trip to St Andrews in Scotland to play golf.
“I regret that, it was naive of me. It shouldn’t have happened,” he said of the incident that occurred on a day off.
“I have apologised to the manager; we were in the wrong but that is in the past now and we are only looking forward.
We were very disappointed to lose at Wolves but we know we are not in a desperate position. It is important that we work harder and prove doubters wrong
“As a group of players we let the club and the fans down at Wolves. We are sorry for that but it is only one result and as a team we are now desperate to put that right. The best way of doing that is on the pitch with wins, starting on Thursday in the Europa League.”
