La Liga Premier League — 30 May 2013

Manuel Pellegrini looks set to become the Manchester City bossManuel Pellegrini will manage Malaga for the last time on Saturday, as they visit Spanish champions Barcelona.

The Chilean has already revealed that he will leave Malaga when the season finishes and has now claimed that he has a verbal agreement with Premier League Manchester City to become their new boss.


There has been speculation for a while now that the Chilean would arrive at Eastlands this summer. In fact, Pellegrini was being linked with the job before City had even sacked Roberto Mancini. It now seems that Pellegrini is one-step closer to becoming the next Manchester City boss.


Manuel Pellegrini is one of the most highly-rated bosses in European football. His work in guiding relative minors Villarreal and Malaga to the latter stages of the Champions League had the plaudits purring.

Pellegrini’s only job with a major European club was with Spanish giants Real Madrid, where Los Blancos finished a close second to Pep Guardiola’s historic Barcelona in La Liga. Second was not good enough for the Real hierarchy though and Pellegrini was dismissed.

Since being sacked by Real the Chilean has inspired Malaga to the top four in La Liga and the quarter-finals of the Champions League against all odds. Financial trouble at Malaga means that he will leave the club this summer.


The Manchester City job is a good opportunity for Manuel Pellegrini to win trophies. The Chilean boss has yet to claim silverware in European football, despite winning silverware in his home country and Argentina.


Manuel Pellegrini has proved in his time in European football that he is a superb tactician and he seems like the ideal choice for Manchester City. Pellegrini will inherit a very good squad of players and will no doubt have money to spend. Next season promises to be an interesting one in the Premier League.

Is Manuel Pellegrini the right boss for Manchester City?
