Fresh start for City boss
HAPPY: Carlos TevezRoberto Mancini just can't wait for pre-season training. The Italian believes that he will be able to improve on this season's campaign by having a full season to work with his squad, from start to finish. He will spend the summer adding to his squad and looking forward to a full pre-season to work with his players. He said: ?It?s not easy for a manager when you arrive in the middle of the season, because you don?t know the players very well. ?But when you start the season, then you can work with your squad before it starts, you can sign some players that you like and you can do your job from the first day. ?For me, that?s good. I feel next season, we can do a good job.? Tevez, City?s leading scorer this season with 29 goals ? and the club?s newly-crowned player of the year, will have a key role to play in that push. The Argentinian publicly complained about Mancini?s occasional preference for double training sessions last month, but he has made it clear to the City boss that he is happy to stay and buckle down. Mancini said: ?I spoke with Carlos. I said to him: ?Carlos, are you happy to stay here?? He said: ?I am very happy here.? ?I have told him that in any week where we don?t have a midweek match on one day we must have two training sessions. ?Next year, we will often play on Thursdays and Sundays. If we want to improve, we must work harder than this year. ?Carlos said: ?I am happy to stay here. I want to improve. I want to win with Manchester City.? ?For me, this is important, because Carlos is a top player. He can set an example to the others.?
