Man City boss Mancini excited about new arrivals and season ahead

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits he's excited about the season ahead.

Mancini is counting down the days until August.

"Excited? Yes I am," he told "Even before I see where we finish in the transfer market and which players come here, I think it will be a good season for us.

"I think we have a squad for success, and our supporters deserve this. Last year we did have a good season.

"We didn't get to the Champions League, but we still had a good season. Now it is time that some trophies came to this club."

Mancini is pleased with his additions and said: "We have got Boateng, Yaya Toure and David Silva, all three of them are good players. Silva and Boateng are very young, a good investment for the club.

"And Yaya has fantastic experience with Barcelona, where he won a lot of trophies.

"We need to have the players if we want to reduce the gap with the other teams. We need to bring in players with good quality."
