Say what you will of Roberto Mancini – and some of the tactical and personnel choices involving that pricey Manchester City side deserve serious discussion – but the man certainly has kept his sense of humor.
Mancini made quite an entrance Friday into his morning press conference – wearing a David Platt mask. Platt is the former England international and now an assistant under Mancini. More to the point, Platt has stood in for Mancini at more than a few news conference in recent weeks as the heat on Mancini around the Etihad has continued to rise.
So he was poking some fun at himself this morning when he walked in and soon asked the assembled media, “Do you prefer David or me?”
