Man City manager Mancini believes PL title race not over yet
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has warned Manchester United that the Premier League title race is far from over after his team dropped more points during their 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Etihad Stadium on Sunday, but the Italian admitted the champions probably would need to win every game till the season end to reclaim their trophy.
The City boss, whose team is nine points clear of United in the title race, believes the table toppers could choke when the pressure is on, just as they did last season when they blew a massive lead on the run in, the Daily Mirror reports.
Mancini said the title isn't over. Absolutely no way, as he believes they can still win it because of last season, and also for the way they have played this season.
Mancini added two games and the title race is open again, adding he doesn't see why history can't repeat itself, adding last year they caught up eight points in six games and this year they still have 12 games.
The former Inter Milan boss however admitted that probably now the team needs to win most if not all of the games.
Mancini added this is football and it is not finished, adding they are confident it can happen.
Mancini said the fact United is still playing in the Champions League gives them an added advantage, adding they would like to play in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford with just two or three points behind the 19-times English champions. (ANI)
