Vieira: Mancini right for City

City have dropped out of the title race in recent weeks and also

crashed out of the Europa League to Dynamo Kiev earlier this month.

Mancini is reported to be under pressure with a top-four finish the

minimum requirement for City this term. A number of clubs in Italy

are thought to keen on luring the former Inter Milan boss back home

if he loses his Eastlands position. However Vieira, who played

under Mancini at Inter, believes the Italian needs time before he

can assemble a title-winning side at Eastlands. “The ingredients

are there but in football you need time,” Vieira told the Daily

Mirror. “But people don’t give you time. So that is the pressure,

but we deal with it because it’s part of our job. “He (Mancini) is

a really demanding manager, demanding in the amount of

concentration he expects from his team in training and in games.

“He is always behind the players, trying to get the best of his

players. “We know we can win the title with the team we’ve got. And

on the pitch we have to show that, week after week. “It’s not

because you’ve got the biggest squad that you’re guaranteed to

win.”
