ABSTRACT
ROBERTO MANCINI hit back at his squad yesterday, insisting that top players should be able to deal with any system on the pitch. Manchester City defender Micah Richards had questioned his manager's decision to play with three central defenders during their 3-1 Champions League defeat at Ajax on Wednesday night, claiming that the players were happier lining up in a flat back four.
