Man Utd boss Ferguson can’t see Mancini lasting long at Man City

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson can't see Roberto Mancini surviving long at Manchester City.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson can't see Roberto Mancini surviving long at Manchester City.

Mancini takes charge of his first game since taking over from Mark Hughes when Stoke City visit Manchester.

Told that Mancini is City’s 14th manager in his two-and-a-half decades at Old Trafford, Ferguson said: "14th? Is that all? I can’t wait for the 20th.

"This one’s a gamble, isn’t it? Only time will tell really. It’s not an easy league."
