Mancini dismisses report about becoming Juventus' new boss

London, Mar 22 (ANI): Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has dismissed reports that he planning to become Juventus' new boss.

Mancini, whose future depends on whether City get in the top four, was linked with Juventus after witnessing Fulham's spectacular 4-1 Europa League win over the Turin giants last Thursday.

After the 2-1 win at Fulham, Mancini said: "I am honoured but I came here on Thursday to see Fulham - there is nothing in it."

Roque Santa Cruz and Carlos Tevez struck the goals that took the Eastlands outfit to within two points of fourth-placed Spurs.

Mancini's men have a game in hand on the North Londoners and he is convinced his side will reach the top four.

"It was a very important win for us. It's difficult to play here. Fulham is a good team with a good manager. But it will be a fight until the end of the season with Liverpool, Villa and Spurs.

"Liverpool is a fantastic team. I think we must fight with the three teams," The Sun quoted Mancini, as saying.

"It was a very comfortable win. We risked in the last 10 minutes after the penalty but before we played a strong game. We deserved to win.

"Carlos scored a fantastic goal, a key goal because after that we played calmly and had chances to score. It was important to win but we should have scored another goal because football is trange," Mancini added. (ANI)
