Platt stood in for the Italian coach last week following Mancini's public spat with reporters, who probed him on his admission that a number of clubs were interested in signing him in the summer.

The 47-year-old sat at the desk wearing the mask, which prompted laughs from the journalists, but swiftly removed it to continue with the press conference as normal.

Mancini also confirmed that the club are not interested in snatching striker Luis Suarez from Liverpool.
