Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini will continue criticising his players in public.

Most top managers steer away from slating their players in the media. But Mancini feels it is how to get them to take responsibility.

The City boss said: “I’m not rude with my players. I say what I think sometimes because I think it could be good for my players to understand they could play better, they can do more.

“I say this because I don’t lie. I say what I think and sometimes it’s important that one player takes his responsibility.

“When you are a top player you earn a lot of money and you should play at 100 per cent.

“Maybe players are sensitive but I am sensitive sometimes. When they don’t play well I’m sensitive.”
