Kolo Touré: We can't keep changing manager

Manchester City captain Kolo Touré has called for the club to stick with manager Roberto Mancini as pressure grows on the recently-appointed Italian.

The ex-Inter Milan boss was appointed in late December after the Eastlands hierarchy decided Mark Hughes was not the man to lead their ambitious and expensive project.

After an initial honeymoon period, whispers over Mancini's future have increased following the club's FA Cup exit and some indifferent Premier League form.

But Touré wants the Italian to be given plenty of time at Eastlands, even if the club do not secure Champions League football.

The Ivory Coast international told reporters: "We can't keep changing manager. Every time it happens we have to adapt to a new way of thinking under a new manager.

"With Roberto we are starting to understand what he really wants.

"He knows how to win trophies, but it takes time and it cannot happen straight away. We need to adapt to his system.

"Mancini brings us experience and every time we play we feel strong, we have stability and that is important.

"We are happy with the job we are doing. We play as a team, we feel good and comfortable with the manager."

He added: "When you build a club the only way is to have continuity.

"Look at Manchester United, where Sir Alex Ferguson has been for 24 years. Arsène Wenger has been at Arsenal for 14 years and for the last five he didn't even win a thing, but he's still there."
