Roberto Mancini has warned his City stars not to get complacent following their mauling of Manchester United last weekend.
After watching his team run riot at Old Trafford on Sunday, the Italian sent out a club-wide email stating Alex Ferguson's men still set the standard that his must reach.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, Mancini wrote:
"Manchester United remain a top team because they have been successful on a consistent basis. We must do the same. After yesterday's result I am sure there are a lot of happy people that have come into work for the club today. Everyone who supports Manchester City, either as a fan, employee or both should rightfully enjoy the moment.
"But at the same time we have to now concentrate on improving further, on continuing to build on what we have all achieved so far, and we can only do this if we immediately look forward to our next challenge.
"We are top of the league, involved in both domestic cup competitions, one as holders, and after Sergio's winner last week in the Champions League we are still on course to progress in that competition..
"However, we are still in October and nothing has yet been achieved. I sent a message to you all at the end of last season congratulating you on sharing in the team's success because of your work. I am doing so again as to be successful we need everyone to look to improve, whatever their involvement at the club."
