Pellegrini Still Deserve to Time
Florence – In the midst of speculation about the future as Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini affirmed reasonably extra time. Who became one of the considerations is the success of winning the Premier League in his first season.
Pellegrini is expected to be fired this summer if the season failed to present a title for the Citizens. But Micah Richards, City defender on loan to Fiorentina, said that menggganti manager just is not the answer.
“There will always be heavy at Manchester City. The owner has said he wants to five trophies in five seasons. By winning the League Cup and the Premier League last season, they actually mean is still on track for that,” Richards said on talkSPORT.
“I think the sack is not going to be an easy thing for them. It is not easy to build a successful team if it continues to replace managers every year,” he said.
City currently occupies position two Premier League standings, stalking standings Chelsea and overshadowed by a number of other clubs are eyeing the runner-up. Another desperate to clinch the title remaining in the Champions League, with City today in a tight squeeze after losing 1-2 when the host Barcelona in the first leg round of 16.
In connection with it, Richards predicts that Pellegrini still be secure in his position as long as it is not so bad to bring his team to undergo what is left of this season – although ultimately did not win the title.
“In the end it all depends on the results, where they finish. If you are in the top three or four, it will be difficult for him. If they finish second by a narrow margin and performed well against Barcelona (in the second leg), I think he’ll be fine alone, “he said.
“He deserves time in the next season. Pellegrini won the Premier League in his first year and people know how hard it is. He deserved the time,” said Richards.
