Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini stunned reporters as he walked into a press conference this morning wearing a David Platt mask.It was the Italian's way of joking with journalists after a couple of fiery exchanges last week.Mancini was irritated by certain questions before and after his side's Champions League draw with Ajax 10 days ago and then did not attend pre- or post-match press conferences for last weekend's clash with Tottenham.On those occasions first-team coach Platt spoke on his behalf and it was that Mancini was referring to by wearing a mask of the former England international.
