Mancini criticises board over transfers

Mancini revealed that he asked for the board to sign Samir Nasri two months ago and is annoyed he isn’t a City player yet.

“I don’t understand this. I thought we could get all the players we needed three or four weeks ago. But here we are and the deals aren’t closed.

“We need this player [Nasri]. I asked for this player two months ago. I’m worried because I don’t have this player today and I probably won’t have him tomorrow. We play three games in August and I am worried.”
