Mancini: City job speculation is rubbish

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini had no excuses after his side's defeat in the FA Cup Final

Roberto Mancini has dismissed reports that Manchester City will replace him as manager with Manuel Pellegrini as "rubbish" - but complained that his employers had done nothing to stop such stories spreading.

City lost the FA Cup final 1-0 to Wigan, meaning Mancini's team will end the season trophyless after a day that began with widespread newspaper stories that the Malaga coach is being lined up to take over from him.

The Italian told ITV: "This speculation is rubbish. If I said it's rubbish, it's rubbish... speculation and rubbish."

Mancini has been unhappy about continued talk over his future, with Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti and even Brendan Rodgers touted as possible successors in recent months.

• Brewin: City offer no case for Mancini's defence
• Jolly: Martinez writes fairytale script

Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and owner Sheikh Mansour have never publicly backed Mancini, while the manager revealed last week that he has not been given assurances he will be in charge next season.

Director of football Txiki Begiristain was recently pictured meeting Pellegrini's agent in Madrid and, apart from one interview when CEO Ferran Soriano branded Mancini "our champion", the club's powerbrokers have remained silent on the issue.

And Mancini said: "You continue to speak about this for six months, and too much in the last two weeks. I don't why the club didn't stop this. I don't think it was correct. I don't think it was true."

The former Inter Milan coach stopped short of insisting that he will be at the Etihad Stadium next season, adding: "You wrote these things - if it is true, we will see in the next two weeks. If it is not true, you have written stupid things in the last six months."

Mancini, who was appointed in December 2009, won the FA Cup in 2011 and the Premier League last season before signing a contract that expires in 2017.

He added: "I am the manager, and I am sure we did a good job in these three years. I have four years left on my contract."

He accepted City did not play well at Wembley, saying: "I don't think that we played a good game. I am disappointed personally because I used to play to win every year. I know football enough to understand why we didn't win. I am the manager and I take all the responsibility because it is normal."

The speculation that Pellegrini is on his way to the Etihad Stadium increased after reports suggested that he would be leaving Malaga, whom he guided to the Champions League quarter-finals against a backdrop of financial uncertainty, at the end of the season.

It was also reported that Pellegrini's agent had met City representatives last month and reached an agreement with them.

The Malaga boss neither confirmed nor denied those reports, but said: "We are in unusual circumstances. I don't think any of us really want to leave Malaga.

"Everyone would prefer to stay but, unfortunately, the circumstances we are in don't allow that."

He said speculation about his future would not distract him, explaining: "Being linked to other clubs doesn't annoy me or make me feel uncomfortable - it's something that usually happens every year.

"We are just concentrating on making sure the team finishes in the European places. The future is uncertain for all of us."
