London, Dec. 26 (ANI): Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is confident he can get the best out of Brazilian star Robinho.
Robinho has been exhilarating and frustrating during his 15-month spell with the club, although many of his recent performances have leaned towards the latter.
"We want to change this situation because we believe Robinho is a good player. I think he will play well also away because he is a top player. When you are a top player you must play well home and away," The Mirror quoted Mancini, as saying.
"All the City players have good character and good spirit. We can work to improve the defensive phase but I think together we can do a good job," he added.
Mancini knows neighbours Manchester United remain the yardstick for the Barclays Premier League and has high hopes of not only emulating, but overtaking Sir Alex Ferguson's side. (ANI)
