Pellegrini promises attacking football at Man City

New Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has claimed that his team will play attractive attacking football under his charge this season, as he spoke to the media for the first time since his appointment on June 1.

BBC Sport has reported the Chilean as saying: “One of the reasons I am here is for the way we play, we will try to be an attractive team.

The 59-year-old left Spanish club Malaga to succeed Roberto Mancini at the Etihad, despite the latter winning the Citizens’ their first ever Premier League title and the FA Cup, only to be sacked after a trophy-free season. And Pellegrini has promised fans a new look City this season after Mancini was criticized for his defensive style of play.

Pellegrini also insisted during his press conference that City would not be valuing one competition more than the other, after it was claimed that Mancini’s team gave a poor showing in Europe last season. He stated that the Eastlands outfit needed to improve in the Champions League, but their Premier League form would not suffer as a result. The former Real Madrid boss also maintained that the title race this season would not be just a two-horse affair: “We have United, Chelsea, Tottenham, five or six teams who are trying to win the league.
