Mancini: I’ve had harder weeks . .

Roberto Mancini insists he has harder weeks in football management despite the continuing furore over the Carlos Tevez affair.

The Italian said that having to deal with such incidents – Tevez has been suspended by Manchester City after apparently refusing to come on as a substitute against Bayern Munich in midweek – was all part of a manager’s job.

Asked if this has been the toughest week of his managerial career, Mancini said: “No, no, absolutely no. Why is it difficult? Some situations can happen in football, in your job. It’s important that the past is finished.

“I don’t have any complications. Only one complication that we had two days ago is that we lost against Bayern Munich, only this. We started very well we can do a fantastic season, I don’t have this problem.
