Italian has no assurances over future but tired of rumours.
Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has revealed he has been given no assurances over whether he will still be in charge next season, but is fed up with the constant speculation over his future.
The Italian tactician signed a new five-year deal last summer, and despite a relatively disappointing season which has seen them lose their league crown to city rivals Manchester United, he is confident his past record with the club will see him continue in the post.
Speculation in mid-week suggested that City director of football Txiki Begiristain had met with the agent of Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini according to the Guardian, but he isn’t the first man to be linked as a potential replacement for Mancini.
“In the last six months you have written everything. You started six or seven months ago with Pep, Mourinho, Pellegrini, Ancelotti, [and now] Brendan Rodgers. I have four years [left on my] contract,” he told the media as reported by ESPN.
“I think that if there was another manager who won three trophies in two years you would say nothing about this manager and I don’t know why you in general continue to ask or say these things.
With Guardiola agreeing to take charge of Bayern next season and Mourinho all-but set for a return to Chelsea, the list of potential successors is dwindling.
However, Mancini went on to state that he has not spoken to the club about his future, but believes he is working with “serious people” and that his trophy record during his tenure thus far should be regarded as a success.
“Never. Never. We don’t talk about this. We don’t have to talk about this. We don’t have any problems about this. We have a good relationship. I know that I work with serious people, like Khaldoon and Sheikh Mansour. In two years we have won three trophies and now we have another chance to get another trophy [the FA Cup].”
The former Inter boss will hope to add another FA Cup to his collection of silverware when his City side take on Wigan in the final at Wembley on May 11.
