City first-team coach David Platt insists Roberto Mancini still has the backing of the club's owners and fans.
David Platt: "There is an appreciation of Roberto from the supporters and the owners.
"The expectancy levels of Roberto Mancini are a lot higher than what people think.
"If people want to talk about rumours and negatives that is up to them. We can't stop that.
"If people want to do things like that, they can. All I know is that during his career he has won things.
