Mancini plays down Hughes 'grudge'

Published Add your comment

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists this weekend's title decider against QPR is not a personal battle between him and opposite number Mark Hughes.

Hughes, who was sacked prior to Mancini's arrival at the Etihad Stadium in December 2009, takes his current side to Eastlands on Sunday needing points to be sure of avoiding relegation.

Depriving City of victory could also deny them the Barclays Premier League title but while some have suggested that might give Hughes double reason for motivation, Mancini claims the teams are all that matter.
