Former Manchester City star fears for Mancini future

Published Add your comment

Former Manchester City star Rodney Marsh has urged the club to keep Roberto Mancini at the Etihad Stadium, but fears the Italian will lose his job in the summer even if he leads the club to the FA Cup.

Mancini's position is seemingly at risk with Manchester City lagging 12 points behind leaders Manchester United in defence of their Premier League title, which could result in a parting of ways in the summer.

The former Inter Milan boss also oversaw a disastrous Champions League campaign - the second successive season City crashed out at the group phase - and the FA Cup remains the only competition they have a realistic chance of winning this term.

Marsh believes Mancini deserves to continue the work he has started with Manchester City, regardless if they win at Wembley or not, but expects the club's owners will see things differently when his performance is reviewed at the end of the campaign.

"I would not sack Mancini. I think he is a terrific manager," Marsh told talkSPORT.

"I think he has got good qualities. He is a terrific football man and he's actually the current manager of the champions. I personally wouldn’t make that change.

"But I have a feeling City are going to. I have a feeling that Man City will sack Roberto Mancini, even if they win the cup."
