Mancini welcomes Hughes criticism as winning omen

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has called for Mark Hughes to keep talking, because City usually win the game after Hughes speaks, the Sun reports. Hughes was dismissed from his City job and replaced by Mancini 22 months ago.

The former Manchester United and Chelsea forward spoke out over the Carlos Tevez saga before the Manchester derby and called Mancini a dictator. Mancini has lapped up the comments by the ex-Fulham boss and does not really care what Hughes says regarding his managerial methods.

We don’t know each other, but I’m happy when Mark Hughes talks to the newspapers before a game because we win. He did the same before the Fulham game last November, so I’m happy if he talks about me before every game,” Mancini said.
