Mancini ignores Mourinho comments

Published 4 Comments

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has brushed off what appeared to be a barbed dig from Real Madrid counterpart Jose Mourinho this week.

Mourinho claimed he would not have been able to return to the Spanish capital had his Real side suffered the same European fate as Mancini's Barclays Premier League champions. Madrid ended City's hopes of reaching the Champions League knockout phase after drawing 1-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

The pair have a perceived rivalry dating back to when Mourinho succeeded Mancini as Inter Milan boss in 2008. Mancini said: "Mourinho is not my chairman, he is not my owner. What Mourinho said is not interesting. Mourinho wants to talk about everything and for me it is not important."
