Mancini's Friday Press Conference: Injuries, Yaya and International Breaks

A quick recap of Roberto Mancini's Friday press conference.

  • Roberto Mancini bemoaned the injury problems following the international break, ruling out David Silva out for the games against West Brom and Ajax.
  • Javi Garcia and Jack Rodwell will also miss the game but Vincent Kompany will return to the line up.
  • He has no concerns over the state of mind of Joe Hart following his error for England in midweek.
  • Mancini dismissed comments surrounding Yaya Toure, saying that he hasn't even spoken to the Ivorian and that every day at City is a 'new challenge'. He couldn't elaborate further about reports that Toure was considering his international future.
  • He feels it is a big stretch of games coming up for City but is concerned about the international break given the lack of time the side has to prepare after the games.
