Mancini slammed him for accepting the â€śminimumâ€ť when he played under him at the Etihad Stadium.
â€śSamir is a player who has incredible qualities but a productivity that bears no comparison with his talent,â€ť Mancini told the Manchester Evening News. â€śHe didnâ€™t understand that you always have to give your best.
â€śIt really pains me. I did everything so that heâ€™d come and he settled for the minimum. Heâ€™s a player who has the ability not to be a good player but to be a world-class player. What a pity that he wonâ€™t even play in the World Cup.â€ť
