Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has shoved the responsibility for the lack of new faces at the Etihad Stadium this summer on Blues' football director Brian Marwood.

City are keen to sign Robin van Persie, with Mancini believing it is crucial to strengthen in order to defend their Premier League title. So far though, with City unable to off-load any of their unwanted high earners, there have been no signings, with Arsenal snubbing an initial approach for Van Persie.

And, ahead of the Blues' friendly with Arsenal in Beijing, Mancini, while not mentioning Marwood by name, made it clear where he feels the responsibility lies. "For this question, speak to the man in charge," Mancini told reporters at a press conference in the Chinese capital.
