Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini feels betrayed by the City owners after finding out that they were planning on sacking him four months before they did, as reported by the Independent.

Mancini, now in charge of Turkish side Galatasaray who face Chelsea in the Champions League this month, claims that City were talking to both Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti about becoming the new manager at the Etihad this summer.

Mancini believes that chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak was setting his sights on sacking the manager in February last year, despite Mancini finally being dismissed after the FA Cup final defeat to Wigan in May.

“I know a lot of people in football and I found out afterwards that they were talking to three or four managers in February, March and April.” Mancini said.

“I know they were talking to Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti.

“And these were the same people I was sat down with for dinner before the FA Cup final.

“It was like Judas. I trusted the chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak 100 per cent, but not those other two guys. Probably he just followed them.”
