Yaya Touré: Man City still harbour hopes of catching Man Utd
Manchester City midfielder Yaya Touré insists that the Citizens have not given up hope of catching Manchester Unied
Yaya Touré admits that Manchester City face a huge task in trying to catch Manchester United and retain their Premier League crown – but insists Roberto Mancini’s men still believe they can lift the trophy for a second season running.
Manchester United, who face Reading at Old Trafford in the late kick-off, still have to host their fierce rivals next month.
And midfielder Touré insists that he and his team-mates will not give up hope after they successfully overturned an eight-point deficit to win the title last season.
“Can we still do it? It’s a hard question, a very hard question,” Touré told City’s website. “But in life where there is time, there is belief.
“We never know what can happen in the future. Maybe United will hit a hard spell and lose a couple of games. Who knows?
“For us, we have to do our own job and that is to keep winning, because we never know what can happen.”
