The handwriting on the wall has been clear all along but has been made clearer again, MANUEL PELLEGRINI has been warned that Manchester City will not tolerate another trophy-less season. reports showed that City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and chief executive Ferran Soriano both piled the pressure on Pellegrini by declaring that silverware is expected every season by the club’s owner Sheikh Mansour.
Despite posting a profit for the first time since the Sheikh bought the club in 2008, City’s heirarchy made it clear that is not enough to keep the Abu Dhabi billionaire happy.
But what is set in motion looks definite already as Pep Gurdiola has given a consent to join Man city next season when his contract expires and Carlo Ancelotti has also agreed in terms to Bayern Munich to take over at the club next season if Pep leaves. That leaves Manager Pellegrini to his fate or not.
What can he do to remain at the club, Win the Champions League maybe?
