Mancini settles on five-year plan

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is keen to build on the success of the club's first championship since 1968 and believes his new five-year contract will enable him to do so.

The Italian had 12 months remaining on his existing deal and although there were reports linking him with the Russian national team, a swift end has been put to all speculation over his future. But he is keen to use City's first title for 44 years as a platform for further improvement.

"The opportunity which exists to build on our recent success is enormous," he told "I am very much looking forward to the challenges and excitement ahead. I am delighted to be able to give all of my efforts to Manchester City for a further five years."
