Manchester City star Robinho says his team mates need to change their mindset if they hope to compete with the top four.
The Brazilian believes the team are capable of competing for silverware but thinks they lack the correct mindset.
He said: “City have good players but the mentality of a small side. They lack the mentality of champions.
“They are content with just finishing fifth or sixth. They are content with little, thinking just a draw might be good enough.
“I have learnt that being second is worthless so I want to inspire a winning mentality.
“You can only be content with winning. You need to want to beat Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.
“Maybe I have changed this a bit but now City have a project to become big, the mentality has to change.”
