IVORIAN MIDFIELDER Yaya Toure has come out in support of his Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini, who has signed a new five-year contract with the club worth a reported £38m.

The 29-year-old who currently plays for the Blues, has also told the club’s official website that he is now ready to commit his own future to last year's Premier League winners.

“I'm very happy because I want to win many more trophies with City and the manager has the same mentality as I do - he wants to win everything with this club and so do I.”

"It is important for this club to have stability at all levels, especially after we have just won the title and the FA Cup the season before.

"It means there will be no changes or disruption to what has proved a winning formula and, for the long term, that can only be good for Manchester City."

Reports had claimed that Toure was among those weighing up his options heading into the summer, with a return to Barcelona proposed.

The world-class midfielder quickly dismissed any speculation by ensuring fans and the club that he was determined to bring further success to the Etihad Stadium as City look to dominate at home and abroad.
