Mancini sets sights on title

17 May 2010 02:17
Manchester City head coach Roberto Mancini is confident that his side can challenge for the Premier League title next season, having narrowly missed out on a top-four finish this time around. Mancini only took charge of the Citizens midway through the campaign, but already has lofty ambitions for his first full season at the helm at Eastlands. He told the club's official website: "I want to win a lot of trophies with this club. We did okay this season, but next season I want us to aim to win the Premier League. "It makes me more determined than ever to bring them success - when we win our first trophy it will be a very good moment for everyone. "I think the most important thing I try to instill in my players is that they must always believe that they can win - we need a winning mentality at this club because eventually it pays off. "It doesn't happen overnight and can take maybe six or eight months to really be absorbed, but if you are prepared to work hard every game, you will always have a chance of being successful. "It's a simple observation, but very true - you can't win anything without working hard."
