Man City legend Tueart urges Mancini to dump Robinho

Manchester City legend Denis Tueart has told Roberto Mancini to dump Robinho.

Manchester City legend Denis Tueart has told Roberto Mancini to dump Robinho.

Tueart, the man who scored the deciding goal when City last won a leading trophy, in the 1976 League Cup final, believes that the club should give up on their £34.2 million British record acquisition from Real Madrid.

“I think it’s about time he moved on,” Tueart, who also served City as a director until 2007, told The Times.

“I don’t think he has settled in well. Mancini will have seen what mental state he is in and will have seen his attitude and his approach to his training. All Saturday’s performance will have done is confirm in Mancini’s mind what the situation is with Robinho.”
