Who you kidding Manuel? Former Man City star insists Pellegrini’s job is under threat

first_imgSteve Howey says Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is living in dreamland if he thinks he is not under pressure to win silverware this season.Pellegrini insisted earlier this week that he is not fearing for his job despite the fact City’s Premier League title bid is in tatters and their Champions League hopes are hanging by a thread.The Chilean coach, who led City to League Cup and top flight glory last season, told the Guardian: “This is an absolutely solid project, carried out the right way. I’ve never felt that if I don’t win I’m out.”Howey, however, claims that whatever Pellegrini may believe, his job WILL be on the line should City end the campaign without a trophy.Speaking ahead of City’s Champions League clash with Barcelona on Wednesday night, when they will attempt to overturn a 2-1 deficit to reach the quarter-finals, Howey said: “Yes, they won the Premier League and the League Cup last year. But this year they didn’t win the League Cup, I can’t see them getting anything against Barcelona and Chelsea will win the Premier League.“Now, if you have got a team that has spent that much money and has not won anything in a season, that is not a good season.“Pellegrini says he was told he is under no pressure to win things, but every manager is under pressure to win something or at least do well in the league, and that is managers who have had nowhere near the amount of money he has had.“He has got to be under severe pressure if he doesn’t win anything this season.”last_img read more
