Mourinho not the man to replace Mancini at Man City

Roberto Mancini will be sacked by Manchester City if he does not retain the Premier League, but the Italian will not be succeeded by Jose Mourinho, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Roberto Mancini and Jose Mourinho

The Real Madrid Coach has been consistently linked with the job at the Etihad Stadium and after City failed to progress past the Champions League group stage for the second year in a row - finishing bottom of the table and so exiting Europe altogether - speculation over Mancini’s future at the club has grown.

It is understood that Mancini’s job will be safe at the end of the season if he takes City to a second successive Premier League title, having won the trophy last season by the slender margin of eight goals. City finished level on points with Manchester United, and can go level with their near neighbours by beating them at home this weekend when the sides meet for the first time this season.

If Mancini cannot keep the Premier League title at Eastlands, however, he will be sacked, but City’s decision makers will look past Mourinho for a replacement. The hierarchy at City is stocked with former Barcelona employees who rejected Mourinho in 2008 when searching for a replacement for Frank Rijkaard, eventually settling on Pep Guardiola - and it is to Guardiola they would turn should Mancini’s services no longer be required.
