Italian simply looking ahead to cup clash with Leeds.
Under-pressure Manchester City head coach Roberto Mancini has launched a strong attack on his critics, claiming that they “don’t understand football.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini hit out on Friday (February 15th) at claims his job could be on the line this weekend, saying his critics “don’t understand football.”
The Italian was responding to suggestions in the morning papers that he could lose his job this weekend were City to lose in the FA Cup at home to Leeds United.
“No, I’m not used to thinking like this. I have another mentality, we have twelve games, we need to do our best, don’t look at the table because it’s not important now,” Mancini said in his pre-match press conference.
“But we are a good team, also we made some mistakes, we lost some stupid points. We don’t deserve to stay twelve points behind, but this is football. (Man) United deserve to stay on the top at this moment. But with twelve games (remaining) we need to do our best. In the end we will see what happens.
“We will train tomorrow but I don’t think we will have Gareth (Barry) and we won’t take any risk with Vinny.
“Sorry, but we started our project three years ago. I three years we have always been in the top, we fought for the title, we won three trophies. We have another chance also to win this year. I think that all the people that talk about this are people that don’t understand football.”
