Manchester City have reported that manager Roberto Mancini has signed a new five year contract to manage the club until summer 2017.
Mancini led City to a historic first Premier League win last season in dramatic circumstances – their first league title since 1968 – and was delighted to agree the new deal. He said:
“I am delighted to be able to give all of my efforts to Manchester City for a further five years. The opportunity which exists to build on our recent success is enormous. Manchester City is a fantastic football club, from the owner, chairman, Board and the executive team, through to the players, staff and fans.
“I am very much looking forward to the challenges and excitement ahead.”
