City star still believes in manager

Published Add your comment

Manchester City midfielder Patrick Vieira believes Roberto Mancini is doing a good job at City, despite the club struggling to remain in the top four as the season comes to a close.

Manchester City have won just two of their last seven Barclays Premier League games, and are sitting fourth on the table. With City owner Sheik Mansour insisting on Champions League qualification at the very least this season, and injuries mounting for City, Mancini faces an uphill battle to keep his job.

"The ingredients are there but in football you need time," Vieira told the Daily Mirror. "But people don't give you time. So that is the pressure, but we deal with it because it's part of our job.”


Vieira believes Manchester City players could not work any harder than what they currently are under Mancini’s reign.

"He (Mancini) is a really demanding manager, demanding in the amount of concentration he expects from his team in training and in games.

"He is always behind the players, trying to get the best of his players.”

Vieira is not just looking at Champions League qualification as a benchmark for the Manchester City squad; he believes that City can go on to win the title very soon.

"We know we can win the title with the team we've got. And on the pitch we have to show that, week after week.

"It's not because you've got the biggest squad that you're guaranteed to win."
