Manuel Pellegrini ahead of Burnley, dismisses Toure exit rumours


Manchester City Manuel Pellegrini says he has no idea how last Wednesday's Champions League exit will affect Chelsea ahead of the last part of the season.

The Citizens face Burnley away from home on Saturday afternoon with the Blues enjoying a healthy five-point lead at the top of the English Premier League table.

"I don't know what impact it [Chelsea's Champions League exit] will have in the title race," Pellegrini said.

"Not only for Chelsea, for all the teams, it is very important to be involved in last stages of Champions League but when you, for different reasons, cannot continue it is important to see what happens to you in domestic games.

"Chelsea must focus their targets in the Premier League.

"We are trying to do what we did before the first leg against Barcelona. That game was Newcastle in that moment. We will try to do exactly the same. I hope we can do it."

Meanwhile, the Chilean has rubbished rumours linking Yaya Toure with a possible move to Internazionale during the summer.

"There is so much news about Yaya from the beginning of the year," he said.

"Maybe everyone would like to have Yaya in their squad, but he is a contract here, he is happy here, he will continue here."
