Mancini marched onto the pitch after his side had fought back from 2-0 down in the Group D encounter, only to have a goal disallowed and see a penalty claim turned down in the closing moments.

UEFA have confirmed that the incident was not reported by either referee Peter Rasmussen or their match delegate at the Etihad Stadium.

When asked what he said to the referee, Mancini explained: "I said it was a goal. I didn't see the last situation with Mario that was a penalty. I said it was a goal.

"The referee and his staff were really poor tonight."

UEFA had previously handed Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger a one-match ban after calling referee Massimo Busacca 'embarrassing' after a defeat by Barcelona in 2011.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
