LONDON - Roberto Mancini has agreed a new five-year contract with Manchester City that ties him to the club until the summer of 2017.

Mancini, who led City to the Premier League title on the final day of last season with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers, spoke of his delight with the new deal.

Mancini says: "The opportunity which exists to build on our recent success is enormous. Manchester City is a fantastic football club, from the owner, chairman, board and the executive team, through to the players, staff and fans."

Manchester City begins the defence of its Premier League title at home against newly promoted Southampton on Aug. 19.
