Sunderland manager fuming after Roberto Mancini comments
Manchester City have managed to take just a point from their two matches against Sunderland this season, although it hasn’t stopped Roberto Mancini making derogatory comments about the Black Cats.

Manchester United still have to play the Wearside team this season and the Italian reckons that it is one of two easy remaining games for the Red Devils following on from Monday’s crunch Premier League clash at Eastlands between the title-chasing teams.
These comments have not gone down too well with O’Neill who claims he will remember Mancini’s words for several years.
Mancini said earlier this week: “After the derby, United have two games which are not easy, but not difficult like us.”
Quoted in the Daily Telegraph, the Northern Irishman said of Mancini’s comments: “It took me by surprise because I had to check that the teams they [United] have to play beat Manchester City, like Swansea and ourselves.
“We have taken four points off Manchester City, but they have actually lost five against us this season. He had obviously forgotten to check the fixtures list properly.
“I will remember it for the next four years. I don’t have an email address for him, but I really thought about sending him one to tell him to keep an eye on what he says in the future.”
