Job safe - Mancini
Roberto Mancini is confident of still being in charge at Manchester City next season even if he fails to win the Premier League title.
City were hot favourites to win the title a month ago but a slump in form has allowed Manchester United to sneak in front and the Reds are now in the driving seat.
A season that promised so much could end in failure without a trophy to show for their efforts and that has lead to obvious suggestions that Mancini could lose his job.
Mancini says he will focus on the final few games of the season before talking about his future, but is confident of still being at the helm next season no matter what.
"At the moment I am just concentrating on the last four league games and after that we can talk about the future," Mancini revealed. "I think we have done a good job here this season and we have to play another four games.
"I am confident I will continue to do this job next year. I really don't think we have any problems at the moment."
