'If It's Football, It's Vital'

I Wonder?

Trevor Jacobs sent VMC the following.

Mancini

Roberto Mancini has poured cold water on speculation that he may return to Italy by insisting that the sacking of Ciro Ferrara in January was not an opportunity for him to return to his native country.

After City's 6-1 demolition of relegation certainties Burnley, the Italian has reiterated his desire to stay part of the Eastland's revolution. Mancini has insisted he has already started planning for next season.

After what happened to Hughsey will Mancio still be at the helm of the blues as City has made it no secret that Mourinho is on their most wanted list?

Mancini is alleged to have referred to Juventus as a 'special club', but it's a statement he denied making. 'Juventus is a special club. I never said those things, I am manager of Manchester City and I am happy to stay here,' he said.

The question is...

So what could Mancini be planning for next season? Steven Gerrard was recently quoted saying, 'you never know' about joining City. Is the England ace calling for a Manchester City bid? If Gerrard leave's for Eastlands will Torres follow him?

City are not only ready to battle United on the 17th of April, they are reportedly ready to go toe-to-toe with Fergies lot in capturing the signature of Mirko Vucinic, of which Mancio is a huge admirer. Vucinic, who joined Roma in 2006 has netted 14 goals this season and has played a huge part in Roma's title charge. Is Vucinic a player that the Blues need? I wonder.

Interesting talking points Trevor. How many Italian based players would he go for and what is the Italian player success rate in England?

Good article Trev. From what i've seen of Vucinic he looks like he'd fit in well in the Premier League, but I don't feel this is an area of the squad that needs strengthening, we are weak in other areas that need adressing more urgently. I've heard these rumours regarding Mourinho but what do you mean by "City has made it no secret that Mourinho is on their most wanted list"?

agreed, well before Mancio was appointed there was speculation that Mourinho was approached as well as hiddink , City have never poured cold water on the Mourinho link..
