Roberto Mancini Dismisses Sacking Rumors But Is Angry With Man City Hierarchy: The Nightly EPL

It’s not easy being Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, but he’s made life harder on himself after his team were defeated today against Wigan in the 2013 FA Cup Final. Post-match, Mancini dismissed rumors that he was getting the sack in the near future, but he was angry at the lack of support he’s received from the Manchester City hierarchy.

Here’s what he said regarding the rumors of Manuel Pellegrini replacing Mancini:

“You continue to speak about this for six months and also too much in the last two weeks.

“I don’t know why the club didn’t stop this because I don’t think it’s true.”

“I don’t know if it is true or not. I don’t think so. I do know football and in football anything can happen. In one or two weeks you can know if it’s true or not.

“I don’t need to ask the club about it. There is no reason to ask.

“Do you think the chairman told me before the game ‘don’t worry’?

“We will see if it is true in the next two weeks. If it is not true you have written stupid things in the last six months. If it is true I’m stupid because I don’t understand this.

“I work with serious people and I think I did a good job.”

What do you think? Is the media the one that’s writing stupid things in the past six months, or is Mancini telling the truth and his position is solid at the club? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
