Toure hungry to build on success
Ivory Coast star Yaya Toure hopes this season's Premier League title is just the start of a spell of domination for Manchester City.
The City midfielder scored twice on Sunday to see off Newcastle at the Sports Direct Arena and in the process put Roberto Mancini's men on the brink of their first top-flight success in 44 years. A win against struggling QPR at the Etihad Stadium next weekend will spark scenes of celebration unless rivals Manchester United can manage to run up a cricket score at Sunderland to thwart them. Toure believes lifting the Premier League trophy would be a clear demonstration of the progress being made by City, following hot-on-the-heels of last season's FA Cup final triumph. It would also represent a creditable return on owner Sheikh Mansour's sizeable investment in the club and justify the decision of Toure and others to move to City. The 28-year-old told citytv: "Always I have said this club can go far, this club can win something. "Khaldoon [Al Mubarak, City chairman] and Mansour are doing incredibly well. They have signed big players and they want to make this club a great club, one of the best clubs in Europe, and they are going the right way. "Last year, we won the FA Cup and we have to continue like that and next week try to win the game against QPR. We know it's going to be tough, but I believe in this team, I believe in the players we have. We have some fantastic players."
