Manuel Pellegrini: Will only discuss Malaga for the time being

The Chilean is hot favourite to replace Roberto Mancini at the Etihad, having already confirmed he will be leaving Malaga after the final game of the Spanish season next weekend.

But Pellegrini says he is fully focused at the moment on helping Malaga qualify for Europe.

Asked if he would soon be taking charge at City, he told a press conference: "I have answered this many times.

"Once we have played Deportivo, we will see about my future and where I am going. I haven't signed any contract yet.

"Once I have finished here in Malaga and completed the matches, we will see where my future lies.

"But for now I will only discuss my present position with Malaga."

Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry says Pellegrini would come highly recommended.

"I don't know too much about him," said Barry. "But people who do know him and who have played with him have spoken highly of him, so that's good."

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
