Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is delighted to hear that midfielder Yaya Toure wants to remain with the club for the rest of his career.
Rows not a problem
In his L'Equipe interview, Toure also referred to some of the problems that can arise in the Manchester City dressing room.
"Of course there are rows at a big club, with all the people with different egos, including mine," he said. "But we will be OK, I am still confident."
And Mancini said: "I don't have any problem with this. I had, as a manager, a lot of players like this, top players, and, as a player, (I was) the same.
"This is normal in a top squad where you have 40-50 players at this level. It is normal that you can have this problem, but we don't have any other problems."
