Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists Manchester United can be used as their inspiration for next season.

Mancini points out how United bounced back from last season' trophyless campaign.

The Italian said: "Last year United didn't win anything - Community Shield, yes - but they continue to improve their team.

"This can happen, you can't win every year. This is impossible in England.

"For this, I think we need to do better next year."
