Sinclair fires warning to Roberto Mancini ahead of Celtic Europa clash
Celtic winger Scott Sinclair has warned Zenit boss Roberto Mancini that he is not the same player that Mancini signed at Manchester City.
The Scottish giants host Zenit in the Europa League tomorrow evening, however this is not the first meeting between Mancini and Sinclair.
The Zenit gaffer bought Sinclair when he was in charge of City for £8million, but the Hoops star never found his feet in Manchester, being labelled as a Premier League flop.
However, Sinclair has seen a resurgence to his career since making the move to Glasgow, winning a number of ‘player of the season’ awards, as the Hoops won a historic treble.
Speaking in a press conference, as quoted by The Daily Record, the former Aston Villa star reveals that he has nothing to prove to his former manager.
“When I went to City, I only played a couple of games under him but there’s so many players there I didn’t get as much game time as I would have liked.
“I don’t have anything to prove to him. I’m a much different player now from then,” Sinclair boldly added.
Sinclair has a leg to stand on, having won three trophies and scored the second most Scottish Premier League goals last season, during his first season in the League.
The former England international could feature for Brendan Rodgers tomorrow evening, although the winger has already appeared in 40 games this season already.
In other Celtic news, this former Zenit star has stated the reasons why he think the Hoops will fail tomorrow evening.
