London: Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak believes the club has shattered the tag of being ‘Typical City’, which they were often referred to because of their knack of regularly pulling disaster from the jaws of triumph.

It looked like being the same again on Sunday before two goals in two dramatic injury time minutes saw them claim the Premier League title after 44 years.

Khaldoon feels it proves the club doesn’t choke more, and is positive about bringing more success for the club.

““The fans have been waiting 44 years and, the way it was going, people were saying ‘Typical City’. But it wasn’t, because this is a team that’s been consistent this year and destroyed that thought,” a daily quoted Mubarak, as saying.

“I’d really like the fans to support me on this — let’s forget about this ‘typical City’ thing. This is a new team, new era and a club that wants to win more than anything and we will fight until the end. We will not lay down,” he added.
