Zabaleta rates Man City boss Mancini as one of the best

Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta rates Roberto Mancini as one of the best managers in the world. "Roberto is a coach whom supporters love one day and hate the other, but he is a very good professional, one of best," said the Argentine.

"I think he is a very tough coach. He wants the best from each player and that's okay."

Zabaleta also revealed that he finds it hard to adapt to the weather in England.

"Winter is difficult in Manchester, it rains a lot and gets dark at 4pm," he said. "What I do is be with Carlos Tevez or Sergio Aguero as we like to do the same things.

"But I don't like to go out too much. Maybe winter is the only thing that South American players don't adapt to in England."
