Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has said that he is currently the best manager in England and is in no danger of getting sacked from his post.

Mancini's statement comes as a surprise as City is battling to retain their Premier League title, with Manchester United currently 12 points clear, BBC reports.

According to Mancini, under his charge, City had won a Premier League, one FA Cup and one charity shield in the last 15 months, which he said made him the best manager in England.

Dismissing reports that he would be replaced with current Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho, Mancini said that there were reports that he was to be replaced six months ago by Pep Guardiola, who had now gone to Bayern Munich. (ANI)
