Mancini hits out at Marwood
Updated Friday, 10th August 2012
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has expressed his frustration at the lack of transfer activity at the Blues this season - once again pinning the blame on sporting director Brian Marwood.
Mancini revealed he has turned down a series of bids for Mario Balotelli, but it is the players he wants to get rid of that are proving a handicap to bringing in new faces. Mancini is believed to want Liverpool's Daniel Agger, plus Italy midfielder Daniele de Rossi, having already given up on Robin van Persie, who seems to be bound for Manchester United.
"After four months, I don't know what to say. You need to ask Brian Marwood," said Mancini. "I am not the sporting director. I can't say anything about players."
Asked whether he was happy with the management structure at City, in which Marwood determines the overall policy, Mancini replied: "I am not happy - but I don't know what to say."
