London, Oct 30(ANI): Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has issued a final warning to his partying players following more embarrassing revelations this week.

According to the Daily Mail, Mancini is ‘unhappy’ with Gareth Barry, Joe Hart, Adam Johnson and Shay Given for their involvement in a late-night party on a trip to Scotland earlier this week.

“I have not seen this video, but I told them my opinion about this situation 10 days ago. I don’t understand this. The video was on Monday, and Monday was a day off. Some players can do what they want, but I don’t understand why,” Mancini said.

“I am unhappy about this, but for them. We play every three days and it is difficult to recover. I want to resolve this problem in the dressing room, not here.”

“I think this problem is not only for us, it is for many players. For British players, it is part of the culture,” he added.

The Italian manager had recently advised City stars to curb drinking habits, and to behave well to prolong their careers.

Mancini’s comment had come after goalkeeper Hart was pictured dancing on a bar in Spain before joining up with the England squad for the Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro. (ANI)
