Mancini wins Premier League

Roberto Mancini and Mario Balotelli are celebrating after Manchester City scored twice in stoppages to win the Premier League.

The Citizens were losing 2-1 at home to 10-man QPR after Joey Barton’s red card for an elbow on Carlos Tevez.

As Manchester United won 1-0 at Sunderland, it seemed their hopes were doomed, but City incredibly scored twice in injury time to secure a thrilling 3-2 victory.

“This is an incredible moment,” smiled Mancini, who celebrated wrapped in an Italian flag.

“We wanted this title and we deserve to win this title. This is for all our supporters, the club, the chairman and the owner.

“This is the perfect finale for a crazy season. We dominated this season for 28 games, but when we beat a team like United twice in one season we deserve this.”
