Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini accepts he could lose his job even if he won the FA Cup - but is thinking only of a long and successful future.
– Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini
I won seven trophies at Inter in four years and they sacked me after four years.This is football. I know football enough to understand this situation.I want to do only my job well, if it is possible, and continue to win every year. This is my target.I don't have other situations where I want to improve. I think it is important for every club to have a manager who can take a lot of decisions about the team, but now it is important we win this trophy.
Mancini's position has been the subject of recurring speculation throughout the season and it may be questioned again if City suffer a shock loss to relegation-threatened Wigan in the final this weekend.
But the Italian has spoken often enough about how confident he feels in the post and we wants to continue bringing silverware to the Etihad Stadium.
Defeating Wigan would bring a third major trophy in three seasons and this is his only concern.
