Roberto Mancini has revealed that he regards Manchester City's Premier League title triumph as his greatest achievement.

At the end of the 2011-12 campaign, City famously scored two injury-time goals against Queens Park Rangers to edge out neighbours Manchester United for their first-ever Premier League trophy.

While Mancini has also won three Serie A crowns with Inter Milan, the 55-year-old admits that his success at the Etihad Stadium was "very special".

Speaking to Il Sore 24 Ore, Mancini said: "As a coach, the Premier League with Manchester City in 2012.

"It's always important for an Italian coach to win abroad, but it was also a very special way to win the title. We completed a comeback at the last second game of the season."

Mancini is now manager of Italy, a position which he has held since 2018.
