Roberto Mancini is confident he can get Manchester City's players to play for him.

Mancini believes it is only a matter of time before he wins loyalty from many of the same City players who backed former gaffer Mark Hughes.

The Italian said: "Some players were close to Mark, but that's a good thing for a manager.

"I hope that, when I go away from Manchester in five, 10 or 15 years' time with five Premier League titles and four cups, the players will have the same feelings for me!"
