City Boss Insists - 'I'm Not Rude'
Roberto Mancini will not shy away from criticising under-performing players.
Roberto Mancini: "I'm not rude with my players.
"I say what I think sometimes and if I think it could be good for my players to understand they could play better, they can do more, I say this because I don't lie.
"I say what I think and sometimes it's important that one player takes his responsibility because when you are a top player you earn a lot of money and you should play at 100 per cent always.
"I am sensitive sometimes. When they don't play well I'm sensitive! This is my opinion.
"When I was a player I always took responsibility.
"When I didn't play well, I said 'sorry I didn't play well and will do my best in the next game,' and it should be like this.
"I don't like players that never think it's their fault.
"These players can't play with me because this is impossible.
"I want strong players that are upset with me when they don't play but after that show me on the pitch that they deserve to play."
