Liverpool legend Alan Hansen has called on Roberto Mancini to leave Manchester City at the end of the season. Hansen wrote in his Telegraph column: "Mancini continues to talk about City's failure to sign the players he wanted last summer, top-class performers such as Robin van Persie, Daniele De Rossi and Javi Martinez.

"But the fact that none of those players arrived and Mancini chose to stay suggests to me that he is at fault for still being there.

"The minute a manager fails to persuade his bosses to get the players he wants is the minute he should go."
