Late bloomer Mulenga comes of age at CHAN


Mancini: We deserved to win

Roberto Mancini insists Manchester City deserved to claim the Premer League crown, having established superiority over title rivals United in every department.

• City win title in injury time
• Jolly: The greatest escape

Mancini's men won the crown on a dramatic final day after injury-time goals from Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero secured a 3-2 win for the Blues over QPR. It was enough to give City their first championship since 1968.

"We deserved it," he said."We played the best football. We scored the most goals, we conceded the fewest. We beat United twice.

"I have never seen a final like this though. In the history of the club, a final like this does not exist. I am very proud of my players though. They wanted to win this title until the last second of the last game."

Captain Vincent Kompany described the Premier League title win as a life-defining moment as he led the celebrations following Sergio Aguero's winner.

"It is one big blur," said Kompany. "I remember jumping on top of Sergio when he scored the goal. He was crying on the floor. All the guys were pouring their eyes out. You don't see strong personalities like that showing their emotion so often.

"We expected to win the league today. The disappointment of being one goal down was incredible. For us to do it was one of the best moments of my life, together with my wedding and the birth of my child."
