Whilst it’s true that Roberto Mancini has had a mountain of cash to spend on building a top notch Man City squad it would still surely be churlish and something of a knee-jerk reaction to sack the Italian if he manages ONLY a second place finish this term.
Mancini has steadily moved Man City up the table and converted them into genuine contenders for major honours and clearly this is the least the club should have expected having forked out a shed load of cash. Any decision to sack the former Inter Milan boss in the summer could only result in setting the club back in the long run.
The 47 year old guided City to an FA Cup triumph last term, there first meaningful silverware in over 30 years and if Man City finish runners-up in the Premier League it would represent the club’s best domestic finish since 1977, would it then be a little ridiculous to sack Mancini?
