Ferguson supports Mancini stance

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson praises Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini for the way he has handled the Carlos Tevez saga, saying he has "shown his strength of character and management".

The striker apparently refused to come off the bench during Manchester City's 2-0 Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich and has since been suspended for up to two weeks.

The United boss adds that experience has taught him that the manager is the most important person at a football club.
