It was Sir Alex Ferguson himself who recently confessed his begrudging wish for Roberto Mancini to leave Manchester. Today the dapper City gaffer extended his stay...
The boss has signed a five year contract extension as the ghost of typical City continues to be exorcised.
This is wonderful news for everyone connected with the club. Mancini, having reinforced his position as an absolute boss over dissenting superstars has fused a superb squad who have busted a gut to secure England's two most coveted trophies and Champions League football under his shrewd guidance.
'I am delighted to be able to give all of my efforts to Manchester City for a further five years. The opportunity which exists to build on our recent success is enormous. Manchester City is a fantastic football club, from the owner, chairman, Board and the executive team, through to the players, staff and fans.'
What a booster to Mancio's cunningly planned pre-season tour. A bouyant squad, further energised by some fine performances in Euro 2012 is slowly re-assembling, with another top-drawer friendly confirmed this evening against Wolfsburg on the 4th August.
