Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits he is unsure whether or not he will be in charge at the Etihad Stadium next season.
City had appeared set to land the Premier League title earlier this season, opening up a seven-point lead at one stage, but they now trail Manchester United by five points in the hunt for the top prize.
Mancini will have one year remaining on his deal when the current campaign comes to a close, but the Italian admits he could be axed if he does not guide City to league glory.
"I know football very well," he said. "I left Inter after winning seven trophies and I still had a four-year contract. So in football anything can happen in any moment. Like the title race, things can change in one week.
"It's the same regarding my future. When you choose this job you know anything can happen. I don't have a problem with this because when you work hard for your job and improve your team, that's the important thing."
He added: "I've been in this world a long time and I know that you can lose this title (job). But what's important to me is that the squad has improved a lot over the last two years.
"I think we're progressing, but I don't decide (my future). I do the best in my job and after I don't decide the situation."
