Jesus Navas: Support for Manuel Pellegrini

Navas, who completed a £14.9m move from Sevilla this week, knows all about the Chilean, having contested a string of La Liga games with his former Malaga and Villarreal sides.

Pellegrini was finally confirmed as Roberto Mancini's successor on Friday and Navas reckons his fellow new arrival will make a smooth transition to Premier League football.

"Everything I know about him is positive. Every team he coaches plays well, and everyone in the city will support him," Navas told City's official website.

"He's important because he will help the team and we all know the importance of a good manager and a good person that we trust.

"I think (his teams are good) defensively as well.

"He clearly knows how to take a team, work hard, and get the most out of us."

Navas will join compatriot David Silva at Eastlands but says he cannot wait to test himself against some of Spain's other exports.

"I'm looking forward to playing against the Spanish players that are here - (Santi) Cazorla, (Nacho) Monreal, (Pepe) Reina, (Fernando) Torres, (Juan) Mata, and then doing well in such a good league," he added.

"It's a great league. There are players who are known all over the world playing in the Premier League."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
