Roberto Mancini Tells Other Managers to “Shut Up”

Another game and another argument between Roberto Mancini and another manager. The managed has had touchline clashes with boss Sir Alex Ferguson as well as with coach David Moyes and Mark Hughes when he was Fulham manager. Last night it was Paul Lambert’s turn to clash with Mancini.

The City boss was upset by a tackle from Villa’s Joe Bennett on City midfielder Gareth Barry, which led to his confrontation with Lambert.

“I asked the fourth official if there was a yellow card, without moving my hands, and he comes over to me,” Mancini said.

“I can understand if I was talking to him but I didn’t say anything.

“I am very tired with their behaviour. Sometimes these managers go to the big stadiums and the other manager says everything and they say nothing.

“When they go to [Old] Trafford, they say nothing. When other managers talk about the referee they always sit on the bench. I don’t like this type of behaviour.”
