City face Wigan Athletic this weekend in the FA Cup final.
When asked if he would be content with a second place finish, the Italian said: "I am not satisfied as I wanted to win the Premier League, but now we cannot do anything about that, we cannot change it.
"But in the end we are in the cup final and we are in second position, so we can be satisfied. But when you start the season you want to win (the league)."
He added: "We hope we can win the cup but it won't be easy. Wigan are in good form and they won away (this weekend). It will be hard."
