Italian simply concentrating on winning Saturday’s Cup final against Wigan.
Under-pressure Manchester City head coach Roberto Mancini has shrugged off rumours that Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini has been lined up to take over from the Italian at Eastlands next season, reports the Daily Mirror.
Mancini, 48, leads his team out in the FA Cup final against Wigan Athletic on Saturday afternoon at Wembley Stadium looking for what would be his third piece of silverware since joining the club in 2009.
The Italian has already won this competition before, his first trophy as manager of City back in 2011, while he also guided the mega-rich club to their first-ever Premier League title this time last year.
However, two trophies in four years at the helm of one of world football’s wealthiest outfits appears not to have been enough to have saved the popular trainer from the sack, with experienced Malaga boss Pellegrini reportedly all set to take over in the north west as of the next campaign.
“I won seven trophies in four years at Inter and they sacked me after four years,” was how Mancini greeted the news of the Chilean’s possible arrival at the Etihad.
“This is football. I know football enough to understand this.
“But, in this moment, it’s better that we think about the final. After we have time to talk about everything.
“I want only to do my job well if it’s possible and continue to win every year. This is my target.
“I don’t have other situations where I want to improve. It’s important for every club to have a manager who can take a lot of decisions about the team.”
