Man City boss Mancini in secret UAE visit

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini made a secret visit to the UAE last week.

The Sunday Mirror says Mancini spent three days in the home country of his club's ­owners as speculation about his future at the Etihad ­continues.

The 48-year-old flew to the Gulf on Sunday as his players reported for a warm-down ­training session following their 4-0 victory over Newcastle.

And Mancini did not return until his squad were undergoing their second training session of the day on Wednesday ­afternoon.

A City source insisted last night that Mancini did not meet with chairman ­Khaldoon Al Mubarak and that he was taking a short holiday rather than ­working on club business.
