Football manager Mancini wants new history for City

15th April 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Manchester City football manager Roberto Mancini has called upon his players to "change the history" of the club - starting with the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United on Saturday (April 15th).

While semi-finals and trophies are a regular occurrence for United, City have not reached this stage of the FA Cup since 1981.

Football manager Mancini insists that the importance of the occasion is not lost on his players - many of whom are trying to win the first trophy of their careers.

He said: "When we started the season our target was to reach the Champions League and try to win a trophy.

"Now it depends on us - at this moment, we should be happy."

However, Mancini's preparations have taken a blow with the news that star striker Carlos Tevez has been ruled out for three to four weeks with a hamstring injury.

The player sustained the injury against Liverpool and could miss up to five football games for his club.
