MOST COMMENTED

Former Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini says he has played a part in the team’s success this season. City is challenging for four trophies this season, having advanced to the League Cup final, the FA Cup fourth round, the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 (where it plays Barcelona in a two-game series), as well as the English Premier League, where it currently sits in second-place, just one point behind leader Arsenal.

When asked about City’s success, the Galatasaray coach said, "I'm happy that Manchester City is one of the best teams in England because I built this team. "The players that score the goals are players that I bought -- Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Yaya Toure, David Silva and Samir Nasri."

That being said, the addition of regular starters Fernandinho and striker Alvaro Negredo, who has 23 goals in all competitions so far this season, have also helped Coach Manuel Pellegrini’s cause.
