Man City boss Mancini denies misleading Given

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini denies misleading Shay Given last week.

Mancini denied suggestions that Given's freshly-stated desire to leave Eastlands stemmed from last Thursday's Europa League trip to Salzburg, when the keeper was under the impression he would play.

"I never said to Shay that he would play on Thursday," said Mancini. "The goalkeeper is a particular situation because I cannot play two of them. At the moment Joe Hart is playing so Shay must stay on the bench."
