Man City to review manager Mancini's position at end of season

London, Apr. 8 : Roberto Mancini's role as Manchester City manager will be reviewed at the end of the season.

Mancini will enter a defining week on Monday night with the derby at Manchester United followed by Sunday's FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea, reports the Guardian.

Mancini was given a five-year contract last summer to indicate the faith Sheikh Mansour has in him and City favour stability, so there is no sense that the owner will be panicked into a decision.

However, with City 15 points behind United in a disappointing championship defence and the failure to reach the Champions League knockout stages for a second successive year - the team finished bottom of their group - there remains doubt over Mancini's position.

The Italian will face an end-of-season review in Abu Dhabi, which is to be led by Khaldoon al-Mubarak, the chairman, and include Ferran Soriano, the chief executive, and the director of football, Txiki Begiristain.

If United beat City on Monday evening, and Mancini's side are then knocked out of the Cup, the Italian's situation would be weakened.

Of the prospect of strengthening this summer, Mancini said he is of his team doing well this year. It suggests Mancini is confident he will remain in place.
