Roberto Mancini: Confronts the officials at the end of the game

Furious City boss Roberto Mancini marched onto the pitch and confronted Rasmussen at the end of the game after seeing a goal from Sergio Aguero disallowed and a penalty claim for Mario Balotelli turned down in the closing moments for his side.

Mancini has escaped any UEFA action after Rasmussen and the match delegate at the Etihad Stadium failed to report the incident in their reports.

Danish official Rasmussen claims it is the first time he has been involved in such an incident and he conceded it is not nice being criticised.

"It's the first time I have experienced such a chaotic end of a match," Rasmussen told Sporten.dk.

"It's never nice (with criticism), but that can happen when a match progress like it did."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
