Roberto Mancini believes winning the Premier League title with Manchester City is the greatest achievement of his managerial career.
The Italy manager won three trophies during his four-year spell at the Etihad including the FA Cup and the Community Shield.
But his most memorable moment was guiding the club to their first ever Premier League title on a dramatic final day in the 2011-2012 season.

And Mancini picked out that memory when he was asked about the greatest victories of his career by Il Sore 24 Ore newspaper (via Football Italia).
‘As a coach, the Premier League with Manchester City in 2012,’ he said.
‘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.’
City went into the last game of the season level on points with rivals Manchester United but their superior goal difference meant they would be crowned champions if they could beat Queens Park Rangers.

Pablo Zabeleta had given Mancini’s side the lead shortly before half-time but QPR, who were looking to avoid relegation, levelled through Djibril Cisse and took the lead after a goal from Jamie Mackie.
With United beating Sunderland 1-0, City had to win but they were still trailing 2-1 when five minutes of stoppage time was added on.
Edin Dzeko equalised with two minutes remaining before Sergio Aguero slotted in the winner with seconds remaining.
It’s no surprise Mancini picked the most dramatic ending to a Premier League season of all time as his greatest ever moment as a manager.
As for his playing days, the 55-year-old selected his title win with Sampdoria in the 1990-91 season.
