Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini celebrated three years in charge at the Etihad this week and he is proud of what he has achieved in a short space of time.

City have added numerous world class players to their squad and have gone on to win both the FA Cup and of course the Premier League to give Manchester the rivalry it has always craved.

The noisy neighbours will never forget what happened last season and the work that Mancini has done to build a squad capable of winning everything.

Despite reminiscing, Mancini also knows that being knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage and sitting six points behind United this season is worrying.

However, the Italian believes that he has changed football in England and in particular Manchester to dethrone Sir Alex Ferguson at the top. Winning the FA Cup and Premier League is all well and good but the best teams go on to win back-to-back trophies and consistently perform at the top, which is something Mancini is working on at the Etihad.

“I think that we worked really well because when I arrived here three years ago I didn’t think that maybe in two years we would win the Premier League and FA Cup,” Mancini told The Sun.

“I thought that maybe four or five years to win the Premier League because it isn’t easy.

“We changed things in England, and Manchester in particular, because for 20 or 30 years United won everything.

“We’ve also made mistakes, which is normal when we work and it can happen, and we need to continue to work hard to improve our game.”
