Robinson slams "embarrassing" Mancini

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson has challenged the Roberto Mancini to try to build a side on a League One budget after the Manchester City manager bemoaned a lack of players.

Robinson chose to highlight Mancini's moan earlier in the week that he was concerned his Premier League title plans could be hampered by a shortage of players.

Robinson said: "I thought Mancini's comments about not being able to field a team with £350million (of talent) was embarrassing.

"I spent £35,000 on (striker) Charlie MacDonald and have got two 16-year-olds on the bench. Come and have a go at this, see how you feel.

"I can't spend £100million on players in the transfer window. I might go and get one or two cheeky loans. I believe those players deserve a shot at this league. I'm proud of them but gutted about the result.''

Robinson was speaking after an injury time Queen Park Rangers goal robbed his side of an FA Cup giantkilling.
