Mancini rubbishes speculation

The Italian said “if there is someone who wants to write these lies, they can do. I’m happy for them, but it is not true. If we want to achieve our target, we must ignore this and continue to work.”

Mancini went on to defend his club’s start to the season, arguing “we are in fourth place in the table, we have started the season very well, ok, we lost against Wolves, but that can happen sometimes.”
