Mancini- Benjani can decide on future
Updated Friday, 29th January 2010
City manager Roberto Mancini will leave it to Benjani to decide whether he wants to leave Eastlands.
Benjani has been linked with a move to Sunderland and could be the second striker to move on in a matter of days after Robinho sealed a loan move to Santos in his native Brazil.
Even though Roque Santa Cruz remains absent with a calf injury, Mancini believes he has enough cover to cope.
On Benjani, Mancini said: "I spoke with him two days ago and he told me he had a possibility to go and play.
"We have a lot of strikers but he it is up to him to decide.
"If he wants to stay here I will be happy. He is a good player and a good man."
