Mancini Hits Out At Club!
Roberto Mancini has criticised the club for not acting to stamp on speculation surrounding his future.
City have pointedly not rejected claims that have emerged from Spain that Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini will replace Mancini in the summer.
Roberto Mancini: "If we find out in a week the things you say are not true, you have written a lot of stupid things in the last six months and more in the last two weeks.
"If it is true I am stupid because I didn't understand anything.
"You have been speaking about this for the last six months, and also the last two weeks. It is too much.
"The club didn't stop this. I don't think that was correct.
"I don't think it is true.
"I have a four-year contract, not one.
"There is no reason for me to ask. Do you think the chairman told me not to worry before the game?
"How many teams did better than us this year? Manchester United. Swansea, I don't think anyone else.
"Our target at the start of the season was to try and win the Premier League.
"But our mistake started in the last market. We didn't do enough to improve our team.
"After winning the Premier League, the second year is more difficult.
"Then maybe you don't get the Champions League. You can have a bad season. We had problems because we lost some players. We lost Yaya (Toure) for a month. We had a lot of problems this season.
"Every manager takes the responsibility. That is normal. But I don't think last year, when Manchester United lost the Premier League and didn't play in the FA Cup final they had all the discussion we did."
