Mancini happy with first year

Roberto Mancini celebrated 12 months in charge at Manchester City with a hard-fought 3-1 victory at Newcastle.

The delighted Italian saw his side surge into a 2-0 lead with barely five minutes on the clock, but then have to survive a concerted fightback as Andy Carroll led an onslaught. City climbed into second place in the Barclays Premier League table, two points behind Manchester United having played two more games, as a result, although Mancini is not getting carried away.

The story is too old to be commented.

He has done a great job so far, but only titles are good enough for the club. And if they don`t end up top 4 this season, with so many class players in the squad, he will have trouble to continue as manager for City.
