Mancini says ‘no pressure’ ahead of ‘must-win’ FA Cup clash with Chelsea
London: Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has said that he is not worried or pressurised about his side’s upcoming must-win FA Cup clash with Chelsea, although there are increased speculations that the Italian may face the sack if he fails to deliver the Cup this season. City will face their Premier League rivals in tomorrow`s semi-final at Wembley knowing that a defeat will effectively end their season, for which they must beat Rafael Benitez`s men to keep alive their hopes of winning any silverware.
However, Mancini insisted that he is relaxed and relishing the chance to have a crack at winning his second FA Cup in three seasons, adding that the Chelsea clash is important for him and the players because it is a semi-final match. Although he said that winning the match will be a tough job for his men, Mancini said that it is important that they continue to win, adding that City has the same pressure which Chelsea or any other team has before a semi-final.
According to Mancini, it is important that his side have the same concentration that they had against United during their Old Trafford win and play the same game which they played in the last two or three weeks. Mancini further said that although he would like to win the FA Cup, he admitted that any game against Chelsea is difficult as they are performing well this season.
