Man City boss Roberto Mancini fumes at 'basketball' goal

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says it is "incredible" that Peter Crouch's goal for Stoke in his side's 1-1 draw at the Britannia was not ruled out after an apparent handball by the striker.

"Their goal was not a goal" explained the exasperated Italian: "It is impossible to concede a goal like that when the referee is right behind Crouch."

Mancini maintained that his side were unlucky not to take all three points after intense late pressure, before bemoaning the amount of time he had spent with his players after the international break.
