Manuel Pellegrini: We are going to grow as a club next season


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says he expects his side to fight for the title next season.

The Citizens beat Southampton 2-0 at home on the last day of the Premier League to finish the season in second place.

And the Chilean is confident he will still be in charge next season.

"It was important to say goodbye to Frank [Lampard] by winning the game, it was a beautiful afternoon for the fans and for the squad," Pellegrini told the BBC.

"I am not happy with the way we worked the whole year, we lost too many points against teams in relegated positions.

"We lost stupid points, but I assure you we are going to grow as a club next season.

"The most important target for us is to recover the title next season, and I believe we are not far away from doing that.

"I never had any doubt in my mind all season [that I will stay in charge]. I know what the owners think, I speak with them all the time, they are not owners who think because you do not win the title you must go out."
