Yaya Toure believes it is important for Manchester City to bounce back from a disappointing season but he accepts it will be difficult to regain the Premier League title.

City’s title defence faltered in the second half of the season and, while the team managed to finish second, the team was eight points behind Chelsea.

With the Financial Fair Play restrictions lifted, Manuel Pellegrini will be looking to bring in so new faces over the summer and Toure believes it is vital the club return to the top.

“The club has been built to top this league and when we finish in second it is quite disappointing,” he said.

“We want to bounce back. This club don’t have to be second or third. We always have to finish first.

“We know it will be difficult because we have opponents like Chelsea, Arsenal, even Liverpool can do it, United will do it.

“We have a lot of targets this year. The target this year is to make this club proud because last year was quite disappointing.

“For us the main key is to try to regain the title this year. It will be difficult but we know we can do it.

“We are looking forward to the new players coming to try to help the club and do something big for this club.

“We want to do something big this year. I hope maybe in a couple of days new players come and make this club a top team next year.”
