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."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
