Redknapp: Mancini deserves a medal

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has said he would not be able to cope with the egos at Manchester City and feels pleased he missed out on Mario Balotelli when he was in charge at Tottenham Hotspur.

Redknapp has knocked a few noses out of joint at Loftus Road since taking charge in November, with his latest blast at his players coming on Saturday after his team lost 4-2 to MK Dons in the FA Cup, while QPR midfielder Shaun Derry recently spoke out about some of his team-mates' poor attitudes.

Redknapp, though, believes Roberto Mancini has far more to contend with at Eastlands.

"When I see some of the headlines coming out of Manchester City, I wonder how Roberto Mancini puts up with it all," Redknapp wrote in his column in The Sun. "The way I see it, he deserves a medal for the way he has coped with some of the egos he's got in that dressing room. I don't think I'd have the patience to put up with them."

Redknapp feels his man-management methods would not have worked on Balotelli, who is currently out of favour at City.

"If all that nonsense with Carlos Tevez wasn't bad enough last season, he's now got Mario Balotelli sitting on the bench most weeks with a face like thunder," he said. "I once tried to sign him (Balotelli) for Spurs before he went to City. I spoke with his brother and had a meeting with his agent after he'd had a fall-out with Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan. But we wanted him on loan and Inter weren't interested.

"And that's when I thought: 'If Jose can't handle him, what chance have I got?' Maybe it was a lucky escape because I don't think I'd have been able to handle the way he has behaved in England."

Bottom-of-the-table QPR will face City on Tuesday night in the Premier League, but Redknapp feels his side are capable of causing an upset.

"They are a great squad and it looks like the race will go down to the wire again with Manchester United," he added. "Mind you, we will be doing our best to improve United's title challenge by taking points off City on Tuesday.

"Since our poor defeat by Liverpool, we've beaten Chelsea and drawn with Spurs and West Ham. If we can keep taking five points from every three games to the end of the season, that will take us to 40 points and give us a fighting chance of staying up."
