City boss Roberto Mancini has again stated he will be in charge at City next season despite further rumours of a return to Italy.
Mancini has been continually linked with a move to Juventus, who are rumoured to be looking to replace Alberto Zaccheroni at the end of the season. But the Italian has again insisted he is staying at Eastlands. “Manchester City is my club and I have a contract here for three and a half years. I am already planning for next season.”
Mancini has taken the blues to fourth in the league and with six games remaining, could find themselves in the Champions League qualifying round next season. And the City manager is already planning for nest season and is interested in signing Wolsburg striker Edin Dzenko, who is also a target for Chelsea and is also planning talks with Joe Hart over his City future.
The young keeper has been superb for Birmingham this season and is on the verge of an England call and Mancini will be looking to hold on to the youngster.
Meanwhile, Mancini has requested a personal hearing after he pleaded guilty to a charge of misconduct following his bust-up with Everton boss David Moyes. His case will be heard on or before the 19th April and Mancini will be hoping it will be after the derby on 17th April.
