'Very angry' Edin Dzeko denies reports of 'dressing room revolt' against Roberto Mancini
Manchester City striker claims that he was misquoted
Monday 04 November 2013
A “very angry” Edin Dzeko has taken to Twitter to deny reports that he led a “dressing room revolt” against former manager Roberto Mancini. Manchester City’s own official social networking has since retweeted all of the Bosnian’s comments.
Dzeko was quoted in a British Sunday newspaper as admitting there was dressing room unease at the club during the latter stages of the Italian’s reign, but has used Twitter to claim that his words had been misquoted.
“I am very angry about yesterday's headline and article,” he wrote. “It says I confess to being part of a dressing room revolt and that I turned on Mancini.
“I did not say these things when I spoke to Bosnian TV – the context is changed in the article. Also some of my real words have been interpreted badly.”
Mancini was relieved of his duties at the Etihad Stadium in May.
