After weeks of speculation City made no attempt to deny, Pellegrini has finally been officially confirmed as the man to succeed the sacked Roberto Mancini. The 59-year-old Chilean has been tasked with bringing silverware to the Etihad Stadium and improving the team’s brand of football – and he is confident of achieving both. The former Real Madrid and Villarreal boss, who has left Malaga to take up his new post, told City TV: “I am sure we have the best squad in the Premier League. We have wonderful players and can win important titles in the next three or four seasons.” Pellegrini added: “Everyone knows if you arrive at a club like Manchester City you need to win titles. I am sure we are going to win – maybe the Premier League, the Champions League. We will try to win a lot. “I like attractive and attacking football, so all the people who go to the stadium can see a wonderful… show is not the word but I am sure they will enjoy the way we play. We are not going to be a team that scores a goal and goes back waiting for a counter-attack. We will always try to play in the opponents’ pitch and play attractive football.” Pellegrini’s appointment was expected early last week, following his final match in charge at Malaga. The delay in the announcement was reportedly due a hitch over the terms of his exit from Malaga, but their appointment of Bernd Schuster as his successor early on Friday suggested obstacles had been removed. Pellegrini has signed a three-year deal at Eastlands and will officially begin work on June 24, ahead of pre-season visits to Hong Kong, Indonesia, South Africa, Germany and Finland. Pellegrini also has a tough act to follow in Mancini, who despite failure to win silverware last season remained a fans’ favourite. The Italian ended a 35-year trophy drought by overseeing FA Cup success in 2011 and he topped that by following up with dramatic Premier League success last year. Pellegrini said: “I think Roberto did a great job here in Manchester. It is not easy to win the title after 44 years. But I think we start now a new cycle, a new style of club, adding to what Roberto has done over the years.” Press Association New Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has no doubt he is inheriting the best squad in England and is convinced he will soon win trophies.
Asked at a press conference If he thinks about a replacement if the Uruguayan striker leaves the PSG, Tuchel said he likes the group he has. “We don’t want to lose any player, but it can happen, it’s the reality”, he said before adding that we have to wait and that “maybe nothing will happen”, but “if things change”, they should adapt.The coach confirmed that Cavani will not play this Wednesday in the league game against Reims, nor did he play the two games last week, officially because of pubic discomfort. “It is not an easy situation for him, I can understand him and I am glad that he remains positive, professional. If there is an injured person, we have an extraordinary substitute.”, he pointed. Tuchel acknowledged that the situation may affect each other’s confidence and He insisted that for this situation to be clarified we will have to wait a few days and that the Uruguayan must fight to recover his place and the rhythm after the injury.The club of the French capital rejected an offer of 10 million euros that Atlético de Madrid made for Cavani, which has a contract with the PSG until June. The top scorer in the history of the club has expressed his willingness to leave now, among other reasons because he believes that Tuchel does not consider him enough. The coach of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Thomas Tuchel, said Tuesday that he does not want Edinson Cavani to leave, but did not rule out his departure, aware of his will to leave and the offers made by him Atlético de Madrid.
