European exit can be a boost: Mancini


Share post:


LONDON: Manchester City’s dismal exit from European competition is not an embarrassment and could boost the big-spending club’s defence of the EPL title, according to manager Roberto Mancini.

City’s three points from six games is the worst performance by an English club in the Champions League and they finished bottom of Group D and failed to qualify for the Europa League as well, but Mancini saw a silver lining. “Clearly this can help us win the Premier League because we don’t play in the Europa League,” he said. “But getting into it was our target. We wanted to win.”

City are currently second in the Premier League, three points behind Manchester United, who they face at home on Sunday. (Reuters)
