Man City players pushed for Mancini dismissal

Manchester City players pushed for Roberto Mancini's sacking, it has been revealed. Mancini was dismissed yesterday.

The Daily Star says several senior City players turned the screw on Mancini and told club bosses they no longer wanted him in charge.

At least a handful of stars had lost faith in him and believed his man-management skills were to blame for the team's lack of progress this season.

Mancini fell out with Joe Hart, Samir Nasri, Mario Balotelli, Joleon Lescott and captain Vincent Kompany this season.

It created an unhappy dressing room and raised speculation that some of the players had no motivation to win for Mancini.
