Man City boss Mancini: I know Dzeko unhappy with supersub role

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini won't rule out starting Edin Dzeko tonight at Champions League opponents Ajax.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini won't rule out starting Edin Dzeko tonight at Champions League opponents Ajax.

The Bosnian came on as a substitute and scored twice but still has the likes of Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Mario Balotelli in his way.

Mancini said: “It is always difficult. When you have four strikers like Mario, Sergio, Carlos and Edin, you cannot play them all.

“Dzeko was fantastic against West Brom. It is impossible that one player will be happy when he is on the bench — I have never known this.”
