Manchester is preparing for another duel, City against United in the FA Cup semi-final that looks worthy of all the good words.
In this short time with Mancini at City, the Blues lost four times to the Old Trafford red devils, the latest one in February with Wayne Rooney’s goal witch sealed the deal.
The Italian admits it will be next season before City can really regard themselves as Manchester United‘s equals. “It is a great semi-final,” he said.
“We are very close with all the top squads but we need to improve more and maybe next year we will be at the same level.
“But it is important that we played a good game at Old Trafford last time and we have a chance to win, like them.”
Everything looks good for Ferguson’s United, based on good results until now, the semi-final is awaited on the Old Trafford.
Until then, City must recover in Europa League the two goal deficit against Dynamo Kiev.
Mancini: “Every year in football you can meet your opponent, two times minimum, maybe three or four.
“And before that we have important games, Kiev on Thursday, Chelsea on Sunday, after that Sunderland.
“We are happy for everyone but we have two more games to play before we can win the FA Cup.”
And the winner is?
