Roberto Mancini insists he is not worried about his future at Manchester City despite the Premier League holders exiting the Champions League at the group stage for the second successive season, the BBC has reported.

City drew with Real Madrid on Wednesday evening when only a victory would have been enough to keep up their hopes of progressing beyond the first stage of the competition. As it was, the draw meant Real Madrid qualified in second place in the table, behind Borussia Dortmund. The Bundesliga side sealed their safe passage to the knockout round with a convincing win over Dutch champions Ajax.

Mancini was speaking in the wake of the sacking by Chelsea of Roberto Di Matteo, the manager who guided the Stamford Bridge club to a first-ever Champions League victory in May, but who could not keep his job when Chelsea’s participation in this year’s tournament came under severe doubt. Chelsea’s defeat on Tuesday against Juventus has left the holders on the brink of elimination.

When asked if his side’s failure in the Champions League put his position under threat, Mancini replied: “I don't fear this. If we think, as a team and a club, we can win the Champions League after two years in it, then we are crazy.
