I’m the best manager in England, declares Man City’s Roberto Mancini
Roberto Mancini laughs off suggestions he is facing the axe at Manchester City, claiming that he is the best manager in England
Roberto Mancini has laughed off suggestions he is facing the axe at Manchester City, claiming that he is the best manager in England.
The Italian steered his side to a 4-0 win over Leeds United on Sunday as the Citizens booked their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
City, however, remain 12 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United with 12 games left to play.
And with hopes of retaining their top-flight title hanging in the balance, some reports have suggested the Italian could be sacked by the Eastlands outfit.
But Mancini insists that “there is not another manager like him” and believes he has been the best coach in the country over the last 15 months.
“Someone said for six months that Manchester City would change their manager and [Pep] Guardiola would come in,” talkSPORT quotes Mancini as saying.
“After Guardiola went to Bayern Munich another manager [is being linked]. They don’t have a very good memory, because in the last 15 months I’m the best manager in England because I’ve one Premier League, one FA Cup and one Charity Shield.
“There is not another manager like me and I understand I can do nothing [about the rumours] but this is the reality.”
