Manchester United legend Gary Neville doesn't believe Roberto Mancini's public criticism of his players is to blame for Manchester City's disappointing campaign.

Neville cites last season's similar outbursts as to why the issue is being overblown.

“From my perspective, you would always argue it’s a misjudgement because I’m not sure how it’s going to get the players on-side. But nobody was complaining about that last season. I think he has a style which [Fabio] Capello had a bit in him: the Italian way – the Latin way – of speaking your mind,” Neville told the Independent.
