David Platt copies Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini by picking up his habit of cycling into training.

Manchester City assistant manager David Platt has adopted the same habit as Roberto Mancini by cycling into training.

The Italian boss regularly gets on his custom-made £2,500 Prestigo bike, which is painted blue with the club's crest, as opposed to driving to the North-West side's training base.

Now, it appears that Platt has also started to leave his car behind by arriving for training yesterday io a Cannondale bike 30 minutes before his colleague, according to the Daily Mail.

Platt also replaced the Premier League-winning manager for City's press conference ahead of tonight's clash against Wigan Athletic.
