Etihad Stadium boss’s future hangs in the balance
Manchester City bosses are set to review manager Roberto Mancini’s position at the club at the end of the season according to The Guardian.
Sources at the Etihad Stadium were reportedly unable to confirm that Mancini would still be in charge once the season kicks off again in August.
With the Premier League title done and dusted and their European ambitions coming to a premature end after the team finished bottom of their Champions League group, albeit one that contained Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Ajax, it’s safe to say the season hasn’t been a successful one for Man City.
Mancini knows his team must perform between now and the end of the season if he is to have a chance of remaining in his job.
Man City overcame Man United in a thrilling Manchester derby last night but are still some 12 points behind their rivals in the Premier League title chase.
That is followed by an FA Cup semi-final tie with Chelsea this weekend which the club know they must win if they are to secure any silverware this season.
The club will insisted they will back whoever is in charge in the summer transfer market with City officials admitting their failure to secure their first choice targets last summer played a role in the club’s underwhelming performance this season.
