Andrea Mancini questions the reasoning behind the criticism that his father Roberto has been receiving this season.

Roberto Mancini's son Andrea has leapt to the defence of his father.

The Manchester City manager has been criticised by a number of pundits this season for their performances in the Premier League, as well as their displays in the Champions League.

However, the defending champions are currently top of the table and Andrea is unsure "what more" his father could do.

"I don't understand the criticism. He's just become Premier League champion with City, which they haven't won for 44 years. I don't know what more he has to do," he said.

Andrea was released by City in the summer and has since joined Spanish club Real Valladolid.
