On RoM we addressed this comment, pointing out the difference between United and City wasn’t anything to do with luck, but our winning mentality. Mancini admitted that players in his squad, like Samir Nasri, had the attitude that they didn’t need to improve after winning the title last season, which is a mindset that our manager would never allow.
Ferguson has taken the piss out of Mancini’s comments today, pointing out what we all know, that being “lucky” doesn’t win you all the games and titles that we have since Sir Alex became our manager.
“We’re dead lucky,” he said sarcastically. “We have only been doing it for 25 years. It is a terrible habit. Maybe he (Mancini) is lucky they are only 12 points behind.”
