Mancini accepted Zabaleta deserved to be sent off.
Roberto Mancini had no complaints with the second yellow card for a challenge on Callum McManaman that condemned Pablo Zabaleta to become only the third player in FA Cup final history to be sent off.
Roberto Mancini: "It was a correct yellow card.
"We were in a good moment, we were attacking, we lost the ball and they counter-attacked.
"In a final I thought we would be better but we had two incredible chances to score.
"We cannot do anything about it now but I am very sorry for my players and the club and for our supporters.
"There were 40,000 people here and we deserved to win this game."
