Mancini: We must do all we can

Published Add your comment

Roberto Mancini has warned Manchester City's owners they "must do everything" to ensure the Blues win the Premier League title this season.

Mancini is concerned his side's battle to win the championship could be badly hampered by an acute shortage of players. Yaya Toure will be missing until the middle of February after the Ivory Coast refused a request to delay the midfielder's departure for African Nations Cup duty.

It has heightened a shortage of players that may result in City not naming a full complement of substitutes against Manchester United on Sunday and leaves Mancini to conclude he needs extra bodies. The City manager said: "This could be the first championship for many years and we need to do everything we can to win it."
