London, Apr 6 (ANI): Manchester City ace Patrick Vieira has said that he can respond to the challenge set down by boss Roberto Mancini and lead his club to the top four of the Premier League.
Mancini recently admitted the former Arsenal midfielder's spell at City, which began in January, had yet to take off due to a lack of fitness.
But he scored in the 6-1 victory at Burnley on Saturday and began to look more like the player who became a Gunners legend, The Sun reports.
And Vieira admitted he was starting to feel like his old self again while vowing to help take City into the Champions League.
"When I arrived I wasn't physically at the top but I'm getting better. Hopefully I can help the team to achieve what we really want," he said.
City has leapfrogged Tottenham into fourth place and Vieira said they are there to stay.
"As a team we are maybe more complete than the others. In every position we're strong," Viera added. (ANI)
