With Manchester City’s Champions League hopes lying in the balance when they host Tottenham Hotspur tonight, the match is being billed as Roberto Mancini’s most important game of his short stint with the club. With the owners of the mega-rich club extremely ambitious, a failure to finish in the Premier League’s top four could result in the Italian following Marks Hughes out of Eastlands.

“If you are not happy where you work I don’t think you stay. I am happy because I want to build a good team here," Mancini said, expressing his long-term plans with the club. "My future does not come down to this game. We have qualified for the Europa League next year, that is important. Now we have a chance to do more."

Should Man City succeed in qualifying for the Champions League next season, another massive summer of spending can surely be anticipated.
