Mancini hits out after Lambert spat

Published Add your comment

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini believes his touchline row with Aston Villa counterpart Paul Lambert is typical of the attitude many opposition managers have towards him.

The pair exchanged heated words in the second half of City's 4-2 Capital One Cup defeat at the Etihad Stadium after the Italian complained to the fourth official about a tackle by Joe Bennett on Gareth Barry.

"I am tired with these managers," said Mancini, who has had his fair share of touchline confrontations during his time in England. "I didn't say nothing to him (Lambert). There are some managers it is better to shut up."
