City not nervous, says Mancini

Published Add your comment

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini claims there have been no nerves in the build-up to Monday's crunch derby against Manchester United.

The two heavyweight title rivals meet at the Etihad Stadium in one of the biggest and most eagerly-anticipated matches in Barclays Premier League history. With City trailing league leaders United by just three points going into the game, the stakes are high, but Mancini has continually played down his side's chances.

The Italian said: "It is impossible to be worried for Monday yet. It is football, not work. Maybe Monday morning there will be pressure, but this is normal for us or for United. But not now, I don't think this."
