Manchester City’s former kit man has branded Roberto Mancini as “arrogant, vain and self-centred” following his departure from the club, according to The
Stephen Aziz, who left his post at City last year, made the comments in a series of tweets on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday morning, before swiftly deleting them.
The Italian manager was dismissed from his post on Monday evening, after the club released a statement saying he “failed to achieve any of the stated targets”.
