Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has had a pop at manager Roberto Mancini.

The Sun reports the unsettled star taunted Mancini after the City chief admitted he was so frustrated with the French ace he wanted to punch him.

Nasri said: "If he wants to hit me then he should hit me."

He then stuck the knife in by declaring that his former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is "the greatest coach I ever worked with".
