Man City boss Mancini accepts he could lose his job

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.

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.

Defeating Wigan would bring a third major trophy in three seasons and this is his only concern.
