London, Dec. 25 (ANI): Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has dismissed talk of a dressing room revolt in the wake of Mark Hughes' departure and insists he has no problem with player loyalty.
The Sun quoted the Italian as saying: "I thought the players trained very well. I think I have a good team and we have only one problem and that is many players injured. I have a good relationship with the players. I appreciate some players are close to Mark but that is a good thing for a manager."
And he joked: "When I go away from Manchester City in 15 years after five Premier League titles and four cups the players will have the same situation with me!"
The former Inter Milan coach also rejected claims made by Cook this week he had previously been approached by Liverpool when American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett were considering the future of Rafael Benitez.
Mancini said that was not the case, saying: "Liverpool never contacted me, absolutely. They have a good manager, Rafa is a good manager."
The new Eastlands supremo accepted it would take time for the players to adjust to his methods but felt they could be playing the Mancini way within a month. (ANI)
