Man City players want Mancini to be axed

The City star’s does not believe the club will be able to challenge for the Premier League title with Mancini as manager.

A City source told The Sun: “There is hardly a player in the dressing room who has any time for Mancini. The place is a complete mess.

“There are times when he tries to be a hard man but no one takes any notice.

“Team spirit is falling apart because there is no respect for the manager and some players are even guessing when he could go.

“They don’t know who they want in, they just want Mancini out.”

Another source confirmed: “The players don’t like his confrontational style.

“They’re also baffled by him tactcially – for example, they couldn’t understand why he brought on defender Pablo Zabaletta for Emmanuel Adebayor instead of striker Jo at Wolves on Saturday.”
