Sparky Under Pressure as Man City Draw Again

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 09 November 2009, 10:01

Could Mancini be the man for City?Mark Hughes is starting to feel the heat at Eastlands following Man City's 3-3 against Burnley at home on Saturday which meant that City have now drawn five League games in-a-row which has seen them slip down the table and out of the top four. The result on Saturday was particularly disappointing for Hughes as their expensively assembled defence let in three poor goals against the unfancied Burnley side, who gained their first point away from home in the match with the equalizer coming in the last minute to the anger of the City boss. VC Bethave reacted to some press speculation about Mark Hughes by opening up the Next Man City Manager Odds market and there are already some big names at short prices in the frame including Jose Mourinho, Roberto Mancini and Luis Felipe Scolari.

The Sack Race believes that City will be after a big name who will be able to lead them into Europe and the Champions League and all the names in the frame at the moment are household names across the continent, we believe that former Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini could be the man for the job. Mancini has been out of work a while now and has made no secret of his desire to manage in the Premier Leage and Eastlands could be the ideal place for him to achieve his dream and at 4/1 The Sack Race reckons he is good value in the betting.

Hughes is under intense pressure at City having spent a ridiculous amount of money in the Summer on all number of players and the owners at Eastlands are thought to be expecting Champions League qualification at the very least, and they may well react if they feel the team is slipping down the Premier League as they have done in the last couple of weeks. An area of concern for Mark Hughes will be the defence with the side leaking goals despite spending tens of millions of pounds on the likes of Joleon Lescott and Kolo Toure in the Summer and Hughes will be eager to plug the gaps over the next month.sackometer-03-needsawinNext Man City Manager Odds with VC Betas of 09/11/2009 - Click to Bet
