Manchester City players want referendum on independence from Roberto Mancini

January 13, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Manchester City’s players and other stakeholders in the club are demanding a referendum over gaining independence from manager Roberto Mancini after the Italian appeared to lose the plot at the end of the Carling Cup defeat to Liverpool.

The defeat was compounded by a tackle from Glen Johnson which created a row between Steven Gerrard and Mancini, causing the latter to produce one of the worst Sir Alex Ferguson impressions ever in the post-match BBC interview.

Barely literate midfielder Gareth Barry announced, “Myself and the other players are pushing the board to make sure that we can actually hold a referendum.

“A lot of the boys don’t really understand the concept but we’ll get there.

“I don’t have a clue what good it would do anyway but that’s not the point of demanding independence, is it?”
