Roberto Mancini has hardly been gracious in defeat, his interview can be viewed here in context. Firstly he disagreed with the red card which was as undisputed a red card as you can see these days:
"I don't agree with the referee's decision"
He then also claimed that City would have won if it had stayed eleven versus eleven, hardly sporting really:
"My opinion is that 11 versus 11 we would have won."
He should have kept this to himself. Just imagine if Arsene had dared to say something similar, he would be absolutely slaughtered in the press. Cesc's comments in response are rather amusing to say the least. I won't label Mancini a whinger, I just wanted to point out the hypocrisy that is present in our media. Mancini clearly could have taken this defeat in a more sporting manner, but the media have just let him do this with virtually no criticism. There are certain managers who would not get this red carpet treatment.
