Mancini insists no problem with new Man City chief Txiki

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is happy to work with new sports director Txiki Begiristain.

Begiristain's appointment has been interpreted in some quarters as a blow to Mancini, as the Spaniard will have control over player recruitment.

But the manager said: "I am very happy. He has a lot of experience with a top club like Barca.

"If we did well in the last two years, I think we can do better in the future.

"It is very important for this reason. He worked with Barca and won everything with this club.

"He built a fantastic team with Barca and for this reason I think, for us, he will be very important."
