Leeds boss Warnock: I don't envy Mancini at Man City

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock doesn't envy Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini.

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock doesn't envy Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini.

Warnock, 64, certainly would not fancy swapping jobs with Mancini — because he would find it tough to deal with Premier League prima donnas.

Warnock said: “I had that for six months when I was in charge at QPR and I didn’t enjoy it at all.

“And I certainly wouldn’t like to have 22 players who all think they should be in the first team. Keeping everybody happy is a real problem for a top Premier League manager.

“So I don’t think I would be able to cope with Roberto’s job — and I am pretty sure he wouldn’t be able to do mine, either.

“Managers like him need big financial support and that is why I feel he couldn’t manage at Leeds in the club’s current climate.”
