Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has rejected Wayne Bridge's claim he refuses to talk to the defender and revealed he said two years ago that the former Chelsea man had no future at the club.
Mancini recently questioned Bridge's motives for remaining at City, hinting that the player's salary of £90,000 a week salary was the overriding factor.
Bridge denied this and revealed his discontent at Mancini's managerial techniques, but the City boss has hit back once more, saying: "Bridge said I don't speak to him. That is not true."
