Mancini on ruthless football culture
- From the section Football
Roberto Mancini discusses the short-termism of modern football management, ahead of their 1-0 FA Cup final defeat to Wigan at Wembley.
The Italian, who is poised to lose his job as Manchester City boss, says he "knows football enough to understand" the pressure he is under after a trophyless campaign, referring to his sacking by Inter Milan after winning seven trophies in four years.
Mancini was publicly critical of the Manchester City hierarchy after the FA Cup final defeat for failing to stop speculation about his future.
