Mancini Wants To Put Right City Wrongs!

05 November 2013 10:21
Roberto Mancini could not manage it with Manchester City but insists his Galatasaray team are capable of reaching the Champions League knock-out stages.

The Italian head coach has overseen two matches in the competition since being appointed in September as successor to Fatih Terim, who departed to manage Turkey.Both have been hugely encouraging, with Galatasaray coming from behind to draw away to Juventus in the first and following up with a 3-1 home win over FC Copenhagen.The results have taken the sting out of an opening 6-1 home defeat to Real Madrid, and leave the Turkish champions second in Group B, ahead not only of FC Copenhagen but also Italian giants Juventus.Mancini's Manchester City missed out on the last 16 in the last two seasons, so to achieve the feat at his new club would be an achievement to savour.Roberto Mancini: "It's difficult to change a lot in five weeks."Although it seems that Juventus and Real Madrid are favourites in this group, we will try to get out of it."I have high expectations. We want to continue having good results."
