Roberto Mancini: "I think we know we can beat them because they are not better than us.
"This is sure, 100 per cent - although they deserve to win this title.
"Last year United didn't win anything - Community Shield, yes - but they continue to improve their team.
"This can happen, you can't win every year. This is impossible in England.
"For this, I think we need to do better next year.
"This is important for the club, it is important that they sign new contracts.
"We know that we should buy important players for next year if we want to improve.
"In football you can buy good players and afterwards you don't win - this is football, it is incredible.
"But I am sure we can do well this year, we can do a good job in the market.
"I think we need to improve as a team, as a club, but for this we need more years.
"We can't do this in two years. For 10 years, if we improve, if we win every year, probably it will be the same also for us.
"I don't know, it is difficult to say this.
"You may want one player, but maybe two or three teams want the same player and after you can take this or take another player. It is difficult."
