Roberto Mancini, the man who guided City to their first league title in 44 years last season and signed a new contract until 2017 in the summer, has lived under constant scrutiny this season after City’s poor Champions League Group Stage showing, with Pep Guardiola strongly linked to City before deciding to join Bayern Munich at the end of the season. Speaking in his pre-Fulham press conference, Mancini insisted he was unfazed by the speculation.
I didn’t have any problem for this – I understand the newspapers should write that every manager wants to take this place because it is a good place. But I think we work very well here, I have a five-year contract and I think this is possible for five years.
I don’t know. You should ask him. Bayern Munich is one of the top clubs in the world for its history, like Barça. If he decides this, it is because it is the best solution for him.
