Manuel Pellegrini: Man City boss angry at defensive lapse in Munich

City raced into an unlikely 5-0 lead after just 35 minutes against the Italians but then switched off and allowed their opposition to score three times before the break.

And it is a lapse Pellegrini will not allow once the season begins for real, with City to face Bayern Munich in the final of Audi Cup on Thursday.

"It's not normal that we can be beating Milan 5-0 after 30 minutes," he said.

"But I didn't like the last 15 minutes of the first half because I thought we relaxed before the end of the game and in football you can't do that.

"It's better that this happens now though rather than in the Premier League so we can sort out these things before it starts."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
