James Lawton: Limited powers would not suit a great manager at Manchester City
In the wake of the revised view of the tenure of Roberto Mancini, there is the remarkable suggestion that Manchester City are intent on limiting the powers of his successor.
What seems to be required is someone around the place with the authority and the will to impose his own view on what properly constitutes a functioning team as opposed to an underachieving rabble of multimillionaires. Rule by committee would not have suited Pep Guardiola or Jose Mourinho or, come to the think of it, the old fellow across town who won 38 trophies in 27 years.
