Roberto Mancini Keen To Stay At Manchester City

Steve Claridge by Steve Claridge / 18 October 2011, 09:17

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has expressed his desire to stay at the club for many more years to come. The Italian took over in December 2009, replacing the sacked Mark Hughes, and for a majority of his first 18 months in charge he was under considerable pressure. However, this season City have had an excellent start and currently top the Premier League with 22 points from their opening eight games. Mancini's current contract expires at the end of next season but he has stated that he is eager to put pen to paper and extend his stay at the club.

Mancini has found himself increasingly under-pressure since joining Man City. The club have spent a considerable amount of money since his arrival and the oweners demand results in each and every competition they enter. The heat has since cooled since the end of last season when Mancini won City their first major trophy in 35 years (FA Cup) and guided them into the Champions League with an impressive third place league finish. Combine that with an unbeaten start to the league this season and it's safe to say that Mancini is a popular man in the blue half of Manchester. He has proven he has the credentials to make City a major threat in the league but after a dissapointing start in the Champions League tonight's home match provides an excellent opportunity for the club to make their mark in Europe.

Man City take on Spanish side Villarreal tonight at the Etihad Stadium. City are yet to emulate their league form in Europe, picking up just one point in their group so far, but they will be looking to bounce back and get their first ever win in the competition. They are the odds on 1/3 favourites with Paddy Power, while Villarreal are priced at 8/1 to come away with the win, with a draw available at 4/1.
