We wanted Europa League qualification, insists Mancini after Borussia Dortmund defeat

The Manchester City boss cut an apologetic figure has he lamented his side's failure to test the German side, while maintaining he wanted to remain in European competition (Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City, Roberto Mancini, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League)

Meh, was expecting a comment like this, at least we won a few games and actually had a chance (even though it was minimal)

Doesn't change the fact that you still went out of the champions.

They did have a hard group but i think they still should of been battling for second or first place..

I love tat argument, Borussia Dortmund had a hard group and smashed it when only a year ago they couldn't get through an easy group.

that made no sense.. i said City had an hard group which is true and they should have battled to finish 1st or 2nd.. which is true..

Same can be said of ManU buddymagoo. But this was somewhat expected big tough group and only the hungriest teams made it through.

Mancini is one late Aguero goal away from complete failure of a manager.
