Man City's Mancini Demands Respect Ahead of Ajax Clash

Fed-up Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini demanded respect during his press conference ahead of Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League visit of the Dutch champion, Ajax. City has only one point from three games and is facing elimination from the competition if it does not win and other results do not go the team’s way.

Last week, the Italian admitted that he was in talks about moving to AS Monaco during the 2011-2012 season. When asked to clarify these comments, Mancini responded with the following: "I don't understand why you continue to ask me about last month, last year. It's finished, so why? For which reason, why do you continue to ask me: 'Last year you had another chance to go.’ I stay here because my work is here. I worked for two years. I built with the chairman, with the owner, this team. We won three trophies in two years. For 50 years we didn't win [actually forty-four]. Never. Never.

“Every year I can have two or three new situations where I can go, I want to stay here because I work hard,” he continued. “I am not saying the future will be easy but when you have a new team the strong work is the first two years and we have won three trophies. I think you should have more respect for this, for me, for the club, for the players."
