Mancini frustrated as Man City struggle to make big-name signings

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is disappointed at the lack of transfers this summer, blaming Sporting Director Brian Marwood for the situation. The Italian is believed to want Liverpool defender Daniel Agger, plus midfielder Daniele de Rossi, having already given up on first-choice target Robin van Persie, who seems to be bound for Manchester United.

"After four months, I don't know what to say. You need to ask Brian Marwood," said Mancini.

"I am not the sporting director. I can't say anything about players."

Asked whether he was happy with the management structure at City, in which Marwood determines the overall policy, Mancini replied.

"I am not happy - but I don't know what to say."
