Man City lost motivation after title - Kolo Toure

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure believes the team lost motivation after winning last season's Premier League title.

City relinquished the premiership to neighbours Manchester United this campaign, dropping 16 points behind the Red Devils, and Toure suggests it is because of a loss of enthusiasm after such success.

"They (United) have been more consistent, more concentrated and I think we lost a bit of motivation and determination and that cost us the title," he told Sky Sports News.

"I think City need to start from the first game to the end of the season and try and be focused, like we were last season - every game, as the Premier League is so hard, you can beat Chelsea and then lose against Wigan and those games are key."
