Pellegrini: A change in character gave me success

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has said that changing his character made him a managerial success, BBC Sport reports.

Under the previous boss, Roberto Mancini, City claimed their first Premier League title as well as the FA Cup but were surrounded by controversy due to the manager’s methods.


Pellegrini can now claim the Premier league title if his side manages to beat West Ham on Sunday and claims it is due to avoiding the mistakes that Mancini made.


"As a player I was a different character to the one I am today. To prepare to be a manager you must change a lot of things," he said.


"You have to understand you are not a player and have another attitude with the players."


City are now approaching their second Premier League title in three years but last time around they faced a nervy finish on the last day of the season.


Despite being two points ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table, the Sky Blues need just a point to take the title at the Etihad.


"I know how to control (nerves) - it is different,” said the 60-year-old.


"After so many years, it is very important to control your emotions because when you have to take decisions under emotion normally you do it the wrong way."
