Man City boss backs under-fire Savic

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has given his backing to young defender Stefan Savic.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has given his backing to young defender Stefan Savic.

The 21-year old has been criticised after his recent shaky performances in the 3-2 league win over Tottenham and the 2-2 draw with Liverpool in the Carling Cup semi-final second leg in the absence of captain Vincent Kompany.

Mancini says the former Partizan Belgrade man is a ‘good’ player but does admit there is some improvement to be made.

"Stefan is a young player and when you are young, you can be in trouble for nothing," said Mancini.

"Stefan should be quiet. He is a good player but he needs to improve."
