Roberto Mancini Buys Full Page Advert to Thank Manchester City Fans: The Daily EPL

Roberto Mancini has said goodbye to Manchester City supporters with a full-page ad he bought in the local Manchester Evening News newspaper.

Most City supporters have a soft spot in their heart for Mancini, and feel disappointed that he’s left the club. “Manchester City supporters, 3 unforgettable years. You will always be in my heart, Ciao Roberto Mancini,” reads the ad. It’ll be difficult for any City supporter to have anything negative to say about Mancini after that.

And just to rub it in to the Manchester City hierarchy, Mancini included photographs of the three trophies he won while he was City boss — the FA Cup, the Community Shield and the Premier League title. In your face City hierarchy!

Here are today’s Premier League news headlines:
