Mancini: Man City would've SACKED me if not for league title

Roberto Mancini has sensationally revealed he was for the high jump if Manchester City had not won the league last season. The Daily Star reports Mancini admits it was only two injury-time goals against QPR on the last day of the season that kept his job safe, when late strikes from Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero gave City a dramatic 3-2 win and the Premier League title.

He told journalists yesterday that title failure would have left them "talking with another manager."
