'Embittered' Mancini slams standard of refereeing in Premier League

London, Sat, 21 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 21(ANI): Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has said he is disappointed with the standard of refereeing in the Premier League, and believes rules aren't the same there for everyone.

There have been several contentious decisions in recent weeks, most notably City's title rivals Manchester United winning two debatable penalties, courtesy of Ashley Young's diving antics.

"When I was in Italy I always thought, here, there were the best referees. My idea has changed. I am not frustrated. In Italy we say every place is the same. The rules are not the same for everyone," The BBC quoted Mancini, as saying.

When asked if he was referring to United, Mancini replied: "I'm not saying this; I don't want to say this. I said the rules, maybe sometimes, are different. I can say it is a very strange situation."

United, who hold a five-point lead over City at the top of the table, were awarded a controversial penalty in Sunday's win over Aston Villa, with boss Sir Alex Ferguson admitting Young 'overdid' his fall.

"After some of the some of the situations I have seen in the last three or four weeks, I think it is really difficult for us," Mancini said ahead of City's trip to Wolves on Sunday.

"For us it is important to finish well this season. We want to try to win the next game. That will be difficult. Wolves are bottom of the table and it will be a tough game," he added. (ANI)
