City ace refusing to give up
With 10 games to go, City face a tall order to retain their title and must make up a 12 point deficit behind rivals Manchester United.
However manager Roberto Mancini, and several of his senior players insist the club’s achievement to overturn an eight point gap in the last six games of last season has altered the mentality of the club.
Garcia only joined City from Benfica in the summer, but said: “We are Manchester City, we need to fight for this Premier League title. The players remember the gap that City made up last season.
“I think, if it was the same situation, in another league it would be impossible to make up the gap but, in England, everything is possible because all the teams are stronger.
“United can lose a few games. It is possible. We still have to go to Old Trafford and obviously a win would cut the gap by three points.”
The 26 year-old, who has previously played for Real Madrid, has made 25 appearances for City this season, scoring two goals.
Despite his optimism, Garcia understands the size of the task his side are facing.
He added: “But firstly we have strong games to play against teams like Everton and Tottenham. It is important we win at United but if we don’t win, for example against Everton, maybe the gap will be too big.”
