Man City boss Mancini facing FA rap over bias claims

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is facing FA action after his blast at ref Mike Jones for sending off Samir Nasri during victory at Norwich City.

The Italian is convinced of bias against the reigning champs.

Mancini lamented: "Both players came forward with their heads, so if you are going to send off one, then you have to send off both, not only Samir.

"Samir said he touched his head, okay, but the other player has done the same.

"The linesman has a big responsibility also, because it was not a good decision, it is incredible.

"You want to send off both players? Then, okay, the referee was there, he saw everything. The linesman was behind [the players], he could not see. We will appeal, sure."

Mancini continued: "I am disappointed with Samir, and he will pay his fine, but the decision was not correct.

"Samir did a mistake, okay, but after why when the other player did the same thing, does he send off only one?

"There are two rules for different teams, and I hate this in football and cannot accept this.

"In life, there is only one rule for everyone. This season, I have seen things which are not good.

"For the referees, this is the most easiest thing to do, but I do not want to talk about the referees too much, because I said last time that they had a big lunch for Christmas, and I don't know what [will happen]."
