Mancini warns his squad that no one is safe

mancini.jpgAfter seeing Manchester City slump to defeat on the weekend and fall even further behind Manchester United, we here at the Football Transfer Tavern did not think it would be long before Roberto Mancini responded and the Daily Mail claims he has done exactly that.

Only last week the publication claimed that Mancini was set for a massive summer clear out at the club, and he has only reinforced that further in a Jose Mourinho-esque rant, raging that players either need to step up or get out.

The normally cool Italian claimed to the Manchester Evening News that not only were wholesale changes needed for the forthcoming FA Cup tie with Leeds United but that: “I only want players who are ready for the fight in the last 12 games. I am very angry with a lot of my players, and very disappointed at the performance, because it is impossible to play the way we did.”

Of course City were simply abysmal and have been for the last few weeks  – at the same time when recently departed Mario Balotelli is simply thriving away from the Etihad Stadium in Italy. Mancini did attempt to rally his team who are 12 points behind United with only 12 games left by noting that: “There are games left and we can do better. We need to finish the season the way we did last year.”

Of course, if Mancini does manage to keep his job he will be on the lookout for a striker amongst other things in the summer.

Do Manchester City need a summer clear out? Let us know your thoughts below.

    Why the heck not? Just throw another billion or so into the pot to try and buy your way to a championship. City only got over the line last year because of the devastating run of injuries United suffered from, more a case of United being unable to close it out rather than City roaring home like a train. This year, with only one real major signing (RVP) United are back on track because of a better run with injuries, while City has gone backwards despite a payroll that is massive compared to United’s, which in and of itself isn’t insignificant by the standards of the EPL. Just shows that all the money in the world can’t buy class.
