Mancini dismisses Man City job pressure

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists he doesn't feel any pressure, despite talk of doubts emerging from the boardroom.

With thoughts of a trophy gone for another year, City are now focussed on fourth spot.

But as they still have to face Tottenham, Aston Villa, Arsenal and Manchester United during a testing run-in, in addition to tomorrow's opponents, it will be tough to scramble up from their current fifth place.

However, after his time in Italy, it seems Mancini is impervious to pressure.

"I don't feel pressure," he said. "I worked at Inter for four years. After that it is impossible for me to feel pressure.

"I am disappointed because I wanted to win a trophy this season.

"But now my focus is on fourth position - and we still have a good chance."
