"Patrick is not fit yet, but I think it is better for us and for him to go when he is ready. I think it will be one week or 10 days. It’s better that we don’t risk him, though, because we want Patrick to play until the end of the season

"When Patrick comes back and plays I want him to play for 20 games. That’s what is important for us."

>>Roberto Mancini talking about Patrick Vieira.

There goes the expectation of an FA Cup debut this weekend.

The hope is that it is only a minor injury so he can soon take some of the burden off the current midfield pairing. Not good news though if there is any credence to this story.
