Toure buoyed after Mancini pens new Man City deal

Yaya Toure has spoken of his delight at Roberto Mancini signing a new contract with Manchester City.

The Italian yesterday put pen to a lucrative long-term deal to remain with the reigning English champions which has pleased star midfielder Toure to no end.

"I was very happy to hear the news that our manager has signed a new five-year deal yesterday," Toure told the club's official website.

"It is important for this club to have stability at all levels, especially after we have just won the title and the FA Cup the season before.

"It means there will be no changes or disruption to what has proved a winning formula and for the long term, that can only be good for Manchester City.

"Now the manager can continue to build this club and plan for the future - let's not forget Sir Alex Ferguson has been at Manchester United for 25 years and they haven't done too badly over the years."
