David Platt says ‘fiery’ Mancini not cracking up!

David Platt says ‘fiery’ Mancini not cracking up!London, Nov. 10  : Manchester City assistant coach David Platt has insisted that Roberto Mancini is not cracking up under the pressure of being in the hot seat at Etihad.

Platt made his comments after Mancini went onto the pitch to berate the referee after City's 2-2 draw with Ajax, which looks to have ended their Champions League hopes.

That followed an angry reaction when his commitment to City was questioned after it emerged that he had held talks with Monaco last season as a back up plan, in case he was binned by the club.

"He's fine. People make a great deal out of it but he's fine. He's always been like that. As a player he was like that. Monday to Friday he was fine, but once he's on the training pitch, if things don't go well, he has this fire in him," the Daily Mirror quoted Platt, as saying.

"He doesn't snap. He has this fire in him and that's what he believes in. He wears his heart on his sleeve and if he's got something to say he'll go and say it," he added.

Platt has developed a close relationship with Mancini after spending a major time together in Sampdoria, the report said.  (ANI)
