Manchester City midfielder Patrick Vieira has praised the strength of character demonstrated by manager Roberto Mancini.
Mancini's position in charge of City has been the subject of speculation during various parts of the season.
But he has silenced the majority of his critics after guiding City to a UEFA Champions League berth and then winning the FA Cup.
Vieira told Key103: "Mancini is a really strong man.
"Even when people criticised him, he kept doing things his way.
"He has done an excellent job and has shown everyone how good he is as a manager."
