Mancini baffled by Pellegrini talk

Roberto Mancini reacted to reports that Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini is set to replace him by declaring that he does not understand the speculation about his future and mounting a vigorous defence of his record at Manchester City.

• Papers: City seek Manuel drive
• Balotelli: City should keep Mancini
• Kolo: Mancini's job depends on cup

Stories in Pellegrini's native Chile suggested the former Real Madrid boss will take over at the Etihad Stadium in the summer, but Mancini, who won City's first title for 44 years, said he is tired of talking about his position and sees no reason he should be sacked.

He said: "I can't continue to answer every week about one [manager] or another or another. I don't understand this. Why would Manchester City change their manager?"

Mancini had said earlier in the week that no manager in England had done more than him in the last 15 months and had insisted that, if he should be sacked, so should every Premier League coach.

He has again highlighted his success, pointing out that, by winning the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Community Shield, he has lifted silverware three times.

He added: "After the FA Cup [game against Leeds] I said that, in the last 18-20 months, since Manchester United won the Premier League [in 2011], there were seven trophies [to play for] and Manchester City won three of these seven trophies."

Mancini signed a new five-year contract at the Etihad Stadium last summer, tying him to the club until 2017, and he reiterated his determination to stay.

He said: "I'm not the CEO or chairman. If you want to ask these questions, ask them. I have four more years on my contract, I think I'm doing well, I am happy here."

City host Chelsea on Sunday and Mancini has given his backing to the under-pressure Rafa Benitez, calling him "a fantastic manager."

He explained: "I have sympathy for all the managers. When you start this job you know it's the same every year - if you win you are the best, if you lose you are not."

But despite the rumours that surround him, Mancini said working in England is better than his native Italy, where managers have little job security.

He added: "In Italy, it's worse. There are some teams that change three or four managers in a year. It's incredible."
