London: After becoming the first Manchester City manager since Tony Book 35 years ago to win a trophy by lifting the FA Cup in May, Roberto Mancini believes that he must build on that success if he is to be rewarded by the club’s Abu Dhabi-based owners with an extended deal.
“I haven’t spoken to the club about a new contract, but if they are happy with me this season then I am sure we will talk. I like this job and I would like to stay longer than two more years. I have a good feeling with the squad and the owner, and I like being in Manchester,” a daily quoted Mancini, as saying.
“I am working to make Manchester City the No.1 club. I want us to win the Premier League and the Champions League,” he added.
Mancini has two years left on the three-and-a-half-year deal he signed when replacing Mark Hughes in December last year.
