Roberto Mancini '"sure" of future Champions League success with Manchester City

Roberto Mancini claims that Man City can win the Champions League in the near future ahead of their clash with nine-time winners Real Madrid.

Roberto Mancini has revealed that Manchester City are working towards winning the Champions League and has claimed that they are capable of winning the competition in the near future.

The Premier League champions begin their European campaign tomorrow night with a trip to Real Madrid, who are nine-time winners of the tournament.

Mancini believes that his ever-developing side are capable of adding the prestigious trophy to their domestic title, should they continue to improve.

"If you drive a Ferrari you can win, if you drive a Fiat Cinquecento, probably not," he said.

"In the past we have been working for this. I think we beat good teams but we have played together for two years and we needed time.

"I am sure we will arrive to win this trophy in the future. I do not know when, but I am sure because we are working for this. If we want to improve every year it is possible."

City's debut campaign in among Europe's elite last season ended at the group stage.
