IN BRIEF: Distin questions City's ambition.

SYLVAIN DISTIN fired a parting shot at Manchester City's lack of ambition after Portsmouth's reported pounds 40,000-a-week offer saw off a late bid by Liverpool to take him to Anfield.

The French centre-back closed the door on a five-year career at City to sign a three-year deal at Pompey on a free transfer yesterday.

He said: "I didn't think they really tried (to keep me). In five years I've seen a lot of good players coming and then going. Some of the best like Nicolas Anelka and so on. I think if you want to push for Europe you have to keep your best players."
