Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini celebrated Christmas with the media yesterday.

He was happy to share some champagne with the assembled media yesterday to celebrate Christmas. It was a long way from his first Press conference three years ago.

Former chief executive Garry Cook introduced Mancini — but then had to fend off a storm of questions over his handling of Mark Hughes’ departure.

Mancini said: “I remember that it was a very good Press conference! I remember all the pressure for Garry. I thought I was in a war, a battle.”

Mancini came through that and almost qualified for the Champions League that season.
