Man City senior players angry with Mancini training methods

Manchester City players are unimpressed by manager Roberto Mancini's training methods.

The Mirror says several City players are unhappy at Mancini's habit of changing their training schedule at the last minute, leaving them little time to plan their lives.

And at least one senior first-team player believes the training sessions themselves lack the intensity of those under Mancini's predecessor Mark Hughes.

City have looked disjointed and lethargic in recent games, with some players seemingly finding it hard to willingly adapt to Mancini's methods both on and off the pitch.

A City source said: "Players are creatures of habit who like to know in advance when they're doing things and at what time, but that's not happening.

"At most clubs there's a set training time but Mancini keeps chopping and changing, which means the players can't plan things in advance."
