Angry Mancini to make big changes against Leeds in FA Cup
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Angry Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini is ready to ring the changes after his team's 3-1 defeat at Southampton left the champions trailing Manchester United by 12 points in the Premier League, with only 12 games to go.
Mancini tells the local Manchester Evening News on Monday that he only wants players "who are ready to fight; I am very angry with a lot of my players and very disappointed at the performance.''
The Italian coach adds "you also need to be able to win because you fight for every ball, and fight against an opponent who also wants to win the game.''
Looking ahead to Sunday's FA Cup game against Leeds, he says "I am sure we will change that, because I will change players next week.''
