Mancini and his ridiculous conveyor belt (Video)

Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Mario Balotelli, Carlos Tevez, Samir Nasri, David Silva, Emanuel Adebayor, Roque Santa Cruz. The Manchester City pay role is essentially a Football Manager print screen.

If having all of these establsihed stars wasn’t enough, Roberto Mancini now has the emegence of John Guidetti to contend with after the Swedish international became one of the hottest properties in European football this term.

Despite his tender age, the forward has nonchalantly netted 18 goals in 16 matches for Feyenord, a feat that has featured a stupendous three consecutive hat-tricks.

Set to return to Eastlands in the summer, the highly regarded 19 year-old will not be happy sitting on the Etihad bench and another loan move may be on the cards.

How Roberto Mancini manages this rising star will be another test in his ever-increasing challenging position.
