Mancini orders players to do Christmas shopping at Man City

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is having his players do their Christmas shopping on site.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is having his players do their Christmas shopping on site.

Last year Harvey Nichols set up a nifty pop-up marquee at City's Carrington training ground to allow his squad to shop in privacy and comfort. It must have been a success because they've decided to do the same this time around, says the Daily Mail.

It's a lucrative move for Harvey Nicks, since many of the players frequent their city centre store, meaning the store knows what kind of things the players will be looking to buy for their loved ones.
