No guarantees for Mancini

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini accepts his job may not be guaranteed long-term, even though he has helped steer them towards a glorious future.

The Italian's position at the Etihad Stadium has become the subject of speculation as his side have stuttered in the Barclays Premier League title race over the past month. That is despite a largely impressive and sustained challenge for a first league crown since 1968 and last season's FA Cup success, which ended a 35-year trophy drought.

Mancini, who succeeded Mark Hughes in December 2009, said: "I started my job two-and-a-half years ago and from that moment I think we have improved a lot as a team, as players, as a club. I think this is important when you are at a new team. When you choose the job you should know anything can happen any moment but I don't have any problem with this."
