The FA Cup may offer Cityâ€™s best route to silverware this Âseason but Marsh maintains Mancini is doomed.
He told the Sunday Mirror: â€śMancini is a terrific manager. â€śI like his attitude. But he will be let go even if we win the FA Cup. I would prefer them to keep him than let him go. But he has been very poor in the Champions League. Some of his signings have not been of a standard that Ânowadays is Âidentified as ÂManchester City quality.
â€śAs far as the league is concerned it is over. This is partly because of the great Âdistraction with Mario Balotelli, who let the team down when he was there at the beginning of the Âseason. But itâ€™s also because ÂMancini hasnâ€™t at times seemed to pick the right balance of Âplayers.
â€śHe hasnâ€™t been helped by Âinjuries to key players, Âespecially Vincent Kompany.
â€śKompany is the captain and was fantastic last year. But heâ€™s missed so many games this season and this has had such a detrimental effect on the defence â€“ in fact the whole team.
â€śBalotelli was a Ânightmare and the saga with him also had a major effect on the teamâ€™s bid for the title.â€ť
