Manuel Pellegrini expressed his dissatisfaction with his strikers after the recent Champions League defeat against Juventus at Etihad stadium. It was yet another poor outing for City in Europe.
When it comes to signing new players, Brendan Rodgers has had a very mixed experience as the coach of Liverpool.
The Northern Irish coach has made some good signings with certain players who have managed to make an impact in Anfield but there are others who have struggled to make their presence felt.
Manuel Pellegrini has expressed confidence that Manchester City will reclaim the title next season.
The former Premier League champions were expected to put together a much better title defence than the current campaign. After being in touch with Chelsea on New Year’s Day, City could have easily finished much lower than the eight point deficit between them and eventual champions Chelsea. This is following a spectacular run of poor form during March. Pellegrini’s job appeared under threat immediately after the end of the campaign, but he now looks set to stay as the manager.
Manchester City have had some great results against top teams like Manchester United this season, but they have struggled against some of the smaller clubs.
City dropped yet more points at home to a team from the lower half of the table. Earlier in the season, they suffered a defeat against Stoke City and now they have dropped two points against Burnley.
Manchester City’s title defending season has been hit with a few road blocks in this season as Chelsea are rampaging right through everything in its path as the team of Jose Mourinho are riding high at the top of the Premier League with 29 points, they still remain undefeated after 11 league matches.
Southampton is in 2nd place with 25 points and Manchester City is following them behind with 21 points but Manchester City could have dropped a few spots if it wasn’t for Sergio Aguero.
Roberto Mancini has once again tried to stake a claim in Manchester City’s recent successes by saying that he was the one who built this team. Manuel Pellegrini won the Premier League title in his first season in charge of the club. He joined the illustrious list of managers like Carlo Ancelotti who came from foreign league to win the domestic league in their first season. Mancini made a lot of noises about him being responsible for the current successes because he signed a majority of the players like Vincent Kompany and Yaya Touré.
The Argentine defender Martin Demichelis has played in some of the top clubs around the world which includes: River Plate, Bayern Munich, Athletic Madrid and his current club Manchester City. The 33 year old player has experience performing with different clubs and different managers but he has recently launched a negative comment and feedback about Louis van Gaal.
The Manchester City management doesn’t want any of the star players of the team to be lured away this summer and thus, they have given big contract extension offers to almost all of them.
The news of Vincent Kompany’s 6-year extension broke out earlier today and now, it’s been reported that the Sky Blues have held talks with the Argentina international Sergio Aguero as well and have let him know that they want to extend his contract too.
According to the new deal, in case he signs it, Aguero would be getting two hundred ten thousand Pounds per week for the next 5 seasons.
