Football manager Roberto Mancini bemoans slack defending
11th March 2011 - Chad Lazarus
Manchester City football manager Roberto Mancini was left to rue defensive errors that condemned his side to defeat against Dynamo Kiev.
City lost the first leg of their Europa League tie against the Ukrainian side 2-0, with the goals being scored by former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko and Oleh Gusev.
Football manager Mancini criticised his players for "two stupid goals", saying that his defenders need to "pay attention".
He said: "When you play in the Europa League, you can't concede goals like this.
"We didn't mark well for the first goal, the second goal the same. We were four or five metres from the opponent. When you mark in the box you should be near."
Mancini now has to pick his side up for the club's next football games, starting with an FA Cup quarter-final against Reading on Sunday (March 13th), before the return leg against Kiev at Eastlands on March 17th.
