Sacked Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is grateful to fans for their support since his exit.

Sacked Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is grateful to fans for their support since his exit.

After Mancini had bought an advert in the Manchester Evening News to thank the City fans for their support, a group of fans returned the gesture in Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"There has been a great feeling with the City supporters. We won three trophies in three and a half years at a club that had not won for 40 years and their affection is proof of the strong bond we have created," he told the paper.

"We also succeeded to win 6-1 at Old Trafford against Manchester United. Now the club will therefore continue to do important things."
