Kidd took temporary charge of City following Roberto Mancini's dismissal earlier this month, and watched the team come from three goals down to grab a last-gasp winner in St Louis.

City trailed to goals from Demba Ba, Cesar Azpilicueta and Oscar despite dominating the first half but Javi Garcia began the fightback before Edin Dzeko's double and a Micah Richards clincher.

Kidd said: "I thought we were unlucky to go in 2-0 down but the players were tremendous.

"They have had a tough couple of weeks after losing the manager and the FA Cup final. It has been a draining, emotional couple of weeks.

"They have done great work in New York with the appearances and events for the club, they have done great work.

"We only had one training session, so that might be the secret. You can't say enough about them."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
