Wayne Bridge has hit back at Roberto Mancini after the Manchester City manager questioned his motives for remaining at the Blues.
The Italian has made it perfectly clear the full-back has no future at the Etihad Stadium and implied earlier this week he was staying put for the money. The 31-year-old collects a reported £90,000 weekly salary which other clubs are unwilling to match.
But Bridge has responded by claiming he has never been offered an explanation for why he has been frozen out by Mancini, telling the Daily Mail: "When I was at Chelsea I was playing for a team where Ashley Cole was the best in the world and I still got games."
