Mancini - Don't Blame Me For That Horror Show!
It is arguable that all three goals were due to howlers by England internationals Gareth Barry (twice) and Joe Hart. And Roberto Mancini was NOT a happy man.
Roberto Mancini: "When you are a top player you should take responsibility.
"It's not always the fault of the manager.
"The players should take the responsibility, if they have big balls. If not, they can't play in a top team.
"We can lose if the other team play better than us but not like this. I don't want to see any player like today.
"If they play like this, they should stay at home.
"Usually we play well and if we don't, we put a team on the pitch but here we didn't. That was the problem.
"They played better than us and deserved to win. Congratulations to [Mauricio] Pochettino and Southampton."
