Despite adding the Barclays Premier League title to 2011's FA Cup triumph, Mancini has come under scrutiny in recent weeks over City's poor Champions League form and revelations that he held discussions with Monaco last season.

"That is a part of the game," said Vieira, who holds the position of football development executive at the Etihad Stadium.
