Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is slowly losing his patience with both the City board and players as tensions continue to rise at the Etihad Stadium, according to the Daily Mirror.

City escaped with a 1-0 win at home to lowly Swansea yesterday but the pressure is still firmly on the Italian boss as the club look set to go out of the Champions League at the group stage as they did last year, and are also still trailing runaway leader Chelsea in the Premier League.

“Mancini has no interest in being a friend of the players. He doesn’t care whether they hate him.

“He just wants them to do as they are told when they are on the pitch and the training ground. Mancini is like a lot of Italian managers who believe the coach must be dictatorial in their approach.

“He will not back away from an issue if he feels it is undermining his position. Some players will not like his style, but he has the trophies to show that it works. It has also worked for Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

“Mancini is in a strong position and he expects the full support of the people who pay him to do his job.”

    Everyone should respect what he’s done already.
    He is a tactical genius in my opinion. He knows his players better than they know themselves.

    He doesn’t need to be liked but publically slating players like Hart and Lescott will lose him the changing room and ultimately his job.

    Trailing “Runaway Leaders” Chelsea? 1 point behind Chelsea and the only unbeaten team in the league. Who writes this crap.
