Wenger and Mancini: Two contrasting approaches

Roberto Mancini was clear why City lost to Man Utd in the last minute.
“In the final minutes of a game like that you must try to keep the ball and play slowly because the game is finished,” he said. “I’m angry and disappointed about this.”
He was referring to Craig Bellamy losing possession of the ball while trying an ambitious 60 yard cross field pass. An inevitable draw was turned on its head by that one fatal mistake.
Contrast and compare, Wenger’s refusal to single out the many goalkeeping blunders by Lukacz Fabianski as instrumental in Arsenal’s losses.
Google up “Wenger Fabianski not to blame” and see how many hits you get.
On one level, it can be construed as nurturing a player with a fragile temperament in the spring of his career. On the other hand, it can be interpreted as a “head in the sand” approach to the game. Either way, Fabianski is blessed he has Wenger as his coach. It also shows when it comes to ruthlessness, Wenger stands at the back of the line. Good for the players, bad for the club.
