Mancio No Go To Italiano Posto
Today, City boss Roberto Mancini has underlined his commitment to Manchester City in a bid to quash further speculation about his future in town...
In a welcome show of faith, the dapper City gaffer spoke to the MCFC Official Website staff of his belief in The Blues and his readiness for what's to come:
'I am already planning for next season. Next season will start on July 5 when the players come back after the summer, then after a week we will go on a tour. For us it's more important that we finish well this season, and we must concentrate 100 per cent to get fourth place because we have six games that are very difficult.'
It's clear the suave manager has his sights firmly set on a sky blue future and we don't mean Lazio:
'...we can think about the future - we have in our minds already some players who can be good for next season.'
Mancio then went on to dispel the rumours that he has only signed a six month contract to be in charge of The Citizens:
'There are three newspapers that write about football every day, and they must write something on a manager's future or a player's future. I did give an interview, but I never said I wanted to go to Juventus. Manchester City is my club and I have a contract here for three and a half years. I've said that to the papers in Italy, but I don't know what they'll write.'
Stability is everything at this level and if City can find that under Mancio and his top drawer qualifications, then we can go places.
Maybe now all talk of Jose Mourinho's taxi pulling up on Ashton New Road this summer can be dispensed with.
