“I do not hold anything against Pep Guardiola” – Manuel Pellegrini

Pep Guardiola and Manuel Pellegrini

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has stated that he does not have any hard feelings toward the incoming Pep Guardiola.

“I do not hold anything against Pep. He has behaved in the most correct way possible. I do not bear a grudge against him at all.”

“I have a good relationship with Txiki Begiristain (sporting director) and Ferran Soriano (chief executive) as well. I have good memories of my time with City and am grateful for the opportunity they gave me. I always enjoyed working with them.” Pellegrini expressed.

Bayern Munich coach Guardiola will replace Pellegrini as the man in charge at the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season.

City will play Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final first leg on Tuesday and Pellegrini is desperately hoping to end his time in Manchester with a champion league glory.

 “I am not thinking about what I am handing over to Guardiola. I am only thinking about winning the Champions League,” he added.

“I am leaving behind a team that has won the Premier League title and scored the most goals in a season ever.

“We made it past the group stages of the Champions League for the first time, we made it past the quarter-finals. City did not win a single game in the Champions League the year before I got here, now we are in the semi-finals. We have made progress”
