Yaya Toure - Mancini, an unbelievable boss

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure was full of praising words to manager Roberto Mancini, ahead of the team's final game, which could see them claim the Premier League title for the first time since 1968.

According to the Ivorian player, Mancini's determination has played a vital role in the Citizens' success, in the 2011-12 campaign, as well as overtaking neighbour rivals, Manchester United at the top of the Premiership stands.

"Full credit to Mancini – an unbelievable boss," Toure told reporters.

"He always believed in us, he always tries to tell us: 'Guys, you have to believe in yourselves. Man United can drop some points. The most important thing is that you have to keep on winning games."

"And if we keep on winning we feel United can drop enough points for us. And we did it."

In regards to his team's final Premier League match, the 28-year-old player is confident that City can win and claim the title, but he also warned that the players need to stay focused against QPR, on Sunday.

"[We are] very happy but I think the job is not done yet we have to continue to win and look after Sunday," he added.

"It will be amazing [to win the title] because it's for that that I came to City, to make history, and I hope I will make this history the next week. But we know it's going to be tough against QPR because they need the points."

Manchester City sit at the top of the Premier League table, sharing the same points with the Red Devils, but with goal number advantage.
