New West Brom loan signing Scott Sinclair has hit out at his former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, and said he would “think twice” before accepting a move to a big club again.

The 24-year-old, who recently moved to the Baggies on a season-long loan from the Etihad Stadium, feels he was not given a fair chance by Mancini at City, according to Sky Sports.

Sinclair was brought in just last summer after an impressive spell with Swansea, but made only eleven appearances for City in the Premier League, many of those as a substitute, without much of an explanation from Mancini.

“I even asked him, ‘Why did you bring me in if you’re not going to give me a chance? You’ve given me no game time to show what I’m about’, and he couldn’t really answer the question,” Sinclair revealed.

“As a player, if you’re not getting a chance to play, then you are going to see the manager and ask him what is needed. So I did see him a few times, and we had our differences, but that’s football.”

The former Chelsea youngster added that he is looking forward to playing regularly again with West Brom, and that his experience at City has made him cautious about joining a big club again.

“I now really hope I can settle here and have a great start from Sunday onwards, score some goals, help to win games and if I’m happy enough then hopefully I’ll stay,” he said.

“I definitely would think twice about doing it [moving to another big club] at this stage of my career.”

Sinclair is West Brom’s second loan signing of the summer after Matej Vydra joined from Udinese, and the Baggies could look to the loan market again as they chase a deal for Chelsea winger Victor Moses.
