Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has shrugged off rumours of him being replaced.

A lunch meeting between City’s sporting director Txiki Begiristain and the agent for Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini set the rumour mill churning this week.

Pellegrini is the latest name to be linked with City and Mancini is getting tired of it. The City boss, who has four years left on his contract, said: “I hope he had a good meal.

“You should ask these questions to Txiki, not me. But it’s not important for me. People started writing six or seven months ago about Pep then Mourinho, Pellegrini, Ancelotti and Brendan Rodgers.

“If there was another manager who won three trophies in two years you would say nothing about this.”
