London, Sep 26 (ANI): Furious over more and more Manchester City players joining the injury list, boss Roberto Mancini had a bust-up with one of his backroom team.

City’s football administrator Brian Marwood was forced to intervene after boss Mancini threatened to fire physio Jamie Murphy.

The row on Tuesday was so heated that at one stage Murphy believed that he would not be travelling to the Hawthorns, News of the World reports.

Marwood acted as peacemaker in the dispute and Murphy continues to work at the club.

Despite beating Chelsea on Sunday, City still has a number of star players on the injured list.

Left-back Alexsandr Kolarov, signed from Lazio in the summer, has been wearing a protective ankle boot after surgery, News of the World reports.

Only last week striker Emmanuel Adebayor was involved in a row at the training ground with Mancini over the timescale for his return.

City has a lengthy injury list, with Wayne Bridge, Mario Balotelli and Micah Richards all on the bench. (ANI)
