MANCHESTER: Manchester City's Yaya Toure is already looking aheadto winning more trophies next season after the club's nailbitingcapture of the English Premier League crown. The Ivory Coast midfielder has been a central figure in the club'sprogress but was off the field injured when two goals in extra-timegave his side a 3-2 win at home to Queens Park Rangers on Sunday onSunday. The victory saw City win their first title in 44 years, as theyedged out bitter rivals Manchester United on goal difference. "We have been unbelievable," Toure told City TV. |
"I thank all but Ithink next year will be more and I hope City will become a greatclub in the world. I will think about the new season and I hope itwill be more exciting than the last one. "I think the fans may enjoy it more because now we have fantasticplayers, they are growing. "They have fantastic talent and I think next year we will get morecups than this year." Reflecting on the astonishing climax to Sunday's match, Toure --who went off just before half-time and then saw City fall 2-1behind -- said: "It was unbelievable. When we had 10 minutes left Iwas thinking we needed a goal to try to help us.
"With all this season, always doing well, to have lost the PremierLeague at home -- it would have been a disaster, I think I can saythat. "I am very happy. I think the team deserves it, the fans deserveit, the boss deserves it. I think all this club deserves it thisyear. "That was the character of the team, the winning mentality.
Theteam did fantastically well. "We proved all the players on the pitch wanted to fight for thisclub, to win something for this club, to be part of history forthis club." With United winning at Sunderland, it looked as if the title wasstaying at Old Trafford but stoppage-time goals from Edin Dzeko andSergio Aguero ensured City ended the season as England's top clubfor the first time since 1968. An elated Aguero, who finished his first season with City with 30goals, said: "The only thing I can say is I am really happy. Thetruth is we can hardly believe it ourselves.
"We thought the Premier League had gone. Thank God it all workedout for us. We got two goals in five minutes, it was absolutelyunbelievable." City's lavish spending on players, courtesy of Abu Dhabi-basedowner Sheikh Mansour, has, inevitably, led to accusations they"bought the title". But former City striker and current director Dennis Tueart saidthey had little choice if they were to compete with the likes ofUnited. "We had to invest in a big way to catch up," Tueart told the BBC."We already had a great youth set-up, a good support base and abrand new stadium, we just needed to invest at the top end.
"We are lucky we have got the owners who have done that but theyknew they had a strong base to build on. It is tremendous we havegot the vision to have a long-term strategy, and you get the rewardfor that." - AFP/fa.
