Mancini confident over future
Roberto Mancini is not convinced he will be sacked by Manchester City if they fail to finish in the top four.The Blues` ambitious owners laid down a top-four spot as the target for this season, in addition to an end to the club's 35-year trophy drought.Although there have been a number of setbacks along the way, City remain on course to achieve both objectives as they head into Sunday`s clash with Sunderland."It is very important that we reach our targets but I don't know whether my future is dependent on me finishing in the top four," he said. "I don't think so - I have a three-year contract."In any case, we don't want to finish fourth. We want to finish third."Mancini's men head into the weekend fixtures in fourth, four points ahead of Tottenham, who have a game in hand and are still to visit Eastlands in what looks like a crucial encounter on May 10. In addition, City have a mouth-watering FA Cup semi-final with Manchester United at Wembley on April 16 ahead of them.
