Manuel Pellegrini unfazed by Klopp speculation, says Toure will stay


Boss Manuel Pellegrini insists he is staying put at Manchester City despite rumours linking Jurgen Klopp with a possible move to the Premier League.

A series of negative results saw the Citizens drop to fourth in the table with Liverpool putting pressure ahead of the last part of the season.

But the Chilean says a change of manager is not the solution.

"Every time you manage an important club, not just Manchester City, if you don't have the results the club deserves everyone talks about changing the manager," Pellegrini said.

"It's very easy to sack the manager, but that's not the correct diagnostic.

"You must manage with all kinds of rumour. I trust the work I do. You cannot win the title every year.

"I'm not thinking about next year. I keep working as I know I have the support of the owners, players; that's why I don't feel pressure. I think of the present, not the future.

"I don't need assurances.

"Yaya is a very important player for our team. Everyone is waiting to criticise him. He'll keep playing here."
