Having rediscovered his goalscoring touch on Tyneside, Antione Sibierski has launched a bit of a broadside at former Newcastle left back and Man City boss Stuart Pearce. Speaking to the Independent he said:

“I was disappointed with the way things ended at City. I didn’t deserve that. Even if, last year, I didn’t play very well I always gave everything. I hate to find excuses. Even if you don’t do things right you have to find a reason why and you have to accept that. Sometimes it can happen. But last season I did have excuses. I didn’t play regularly because I was injured and when I did play I didn’t get a run in my best position.

I never felt any confidence from Stuart Pearce last year. It is why, even when I was on the pitch, I was not the real Antoine Sibierski. I was like another player. When you play without confidence you cannot be at ease with yourself and perform to the best of your abilities. I am still the same player who left City last August but I am a player with confidence this season. If you have the full support of your manager and your club, then you can be a different player.’
