Mancini calls on Man City players to perform seriously

Posted By: Staff

London, Jan.1 (ANI): Coach Roberto Mancini has asked his Manchester City players to treat tomorrow's FA Cup clash at Middlesbrough as seriously as next week's massive home Carling Cup semi-final, first leg against Manchester United.

The Italian has lifted the Coppa Italia a total of 10 times as a player and manager and would love to add our famous old trophy to his impressive CV.

The Sun quoted the former Inter coach, as saying: "We must have full attention on the FA Cup and then prepare for the next game as soon as the final whistle goes We are excited by the FA Cup. I know in England that it is a very important competition."

"I won the Coppa Italia six times as a player and four times as a manager with three different clubs. It would be great to think I could now do it at City too," he added. (ANI)
