Toure hails Mancini influence

Published Add your comment

Manchester City talisman Yaya Toure has hailed manager Roberto Mancini as the club close in on their first title for 44 years.

City, who lead the Barclays Premier League on goal difference from Manchester United, need to match their rivals' result in the final round of games this Sunday to secure the crown. They trailed United by eight points a month ago, but Toure says Mancini never lost belief, even though he publicly declared the race over.

The Ivory Coast midfielder told Sky Sports News: "Full credit to Mancini - unbelievable boss. He always believes in us and always tells us, 'Guys you have to believe in yourselves, Man Utd can drop some points. The most important (thing is) you have to keep winning games and United can drop some points. If they do it could be enough for us'."
