Roberto Mancini: "****** hell!"
After a brief pause and a laugh, he gave a more thorough response.
The Italian said: "I cannot continue to answer about this every week.
"We have another two months. In two months you will know if this can happen but I can't continue with this.
"This is normal for you, it's your job, don't worry, but I can't continue to answer each week about one (manager) or another or another.
"But also because I don't understand this - why would Manchester City change their manager? For what reasons?
"After the FA Cup (game) I said that in the last 18 months since Manchester United won the Premier League, there were seven trophies (to play for) and Manchester City won three of those seven trophies.
"For this reason I don't understand (the speculation).
"I'm not the CEO or chairman, if you want to ask these questions ask them.
"I have four more years on my contract, I think I'm doing well, I am happy here."
