Roberto Mancini isn’t a happy bunny. Again.
“It was out of the box and it was no foul, no penalty. There were a lot of mistakes in the past four games. We accept this, but we’re not happy. We can do nothing, only continue to play.”
“Against Fulham here it is always difficult,” the City boss said. “They are a good team, have good players, a good manager. This pitch is always tough for us but the problem is we were 1-0 down and I don’t know why because the penalty was not a penalty. Sometimes it is a penalty but the referee is there to take a decision. Sometimes he does well, sometimes he can do bad.
“If we go to watch all our last three games, against Stoke it was handball (for Peter Crouch’s goal). I don’t know why the referee that was behind didn’t give it. Against Arsenal there was one penalty [we should have been awarded].
“We were 1-0 down and Fulham didn’t shoot on goal for the first 20 minutes. That was a problem but I am happy because the players continued to play well, kept calm and we had a lot of chances.”
