After missing out on Champions League football to Spurs last term, he is determined to burst into the top three this time around.
“This season we’ve got better players like David Silva and Yaya Toure,” he told FHM magazine. “We’re a better team but now we have to prove it.
“We have to work on the winning mentality and add that spirit to the squad.
“We can finish in the top three – that’s our belief now.”
