Mancini baffled by City dismissal

first_img The former Inter Milan boss was dismissed on May 13 – the anniversary of the previous season’s dramatic Barclays Premier League title success – after three days of mounting speculation over his future. Quoted in Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Mancini said: “Even now, (almost two months) later, I still do not understand why. It is still painful, I admit. I think I deserved more respect for what I had done for Manchester City.” Press Association Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini remains baffled by his sacking, claiming he deserved more respect for what he achieved at the club.center_img He added: “In three and a half seasons with my staff, I believe I did an extraordinary job. The club had not won a (league) title for more than 40 years. I won a championship title, FA Cup, a Community Shield and, in the worst season – the last one – I lost a final and I came second (in the league). “The numbers are clear. This sacking still does not have a reason. The Arabs called me and said to me ‘in three years we want the title’, and I won it in the second year. And then I rebuilt a club that was not at the top level of football. Evidently, chairman Khaldoon (Al Mubarak) must have had in his head some situations that were not true.” Mancini pointed a particular finger of blame towards chief executive Ferran Soriano, saying: “For him, I was a person too big (within the club). He and I did not speak the same language and I do not mean Italian, Spanish or English.” Mancini’s final season at the Etihad Stadium was also notable for the sale of Italy striker Mario Balotelli to AC Milan, seemingly marking the end of a tempestuous relationship between the pair. The 48-year-old gave Balotelli considerable support during their two and a half years together in Manchester, despite voicing his frustration on numerous occasions – and a training-ground bust-up four weeks before his departure. “By that time, I understood that in England he was not very well any more,” Mancini said. “He – like (Liverpool forward Luis) Suarez – was targeted by opponents, referees, the public. “Sure, he has not done anything to avoid certain situations. I love him, but I have not heard from since he arrived at Milan.” last_img read more

GFF plans extra financial support for Associations- Forde

Sevilla arrives on guard

first_imgThe Mirandés Try to write a new copera deed. The set of Iraola will look faces in Anduva before the almighty Seville, who traveled with all his artillery ready. Hispanics do not trust a lower-ranking rival in one of their favorite competitions (follow the match live on As.com).The reddish fief will wear his best galas to take his team on wings in search of the quarterfinals. The small details will be key in an appointment in which the local squad wants to show its best version of the game. The Canary goalkeeper Raul Lizoain, last incorporation, could debut under sticks; while less common players in the lineups like González, Kijera, Peña and Matheus They have all the ballots to jump from start to the grass. With everything. Lopetegui It is clear: do not reserve anyone. The only ones left in Andalusian lands are the injured. From Jong is on a roll, has scored in the last two games of League and against him I raised in Cup. From the signing of In Nesyri, the Dutch striker has put the batteries in attack and is performing at a higher level.The central Diego Carlos it seems fixed in the defense since it is sanctioned for the next league commitment. Other names like Escudero, Navas, Banega, Munir or Vázquez They are in the call which clearly demonstrates that Sevilla is taking the KO tournament very seriously since the first qualifier.last_img read more
