Manuel Pellegrini's words after signing new Manchester City contract


Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says he is fully focused on delivering trophies and success to the club.

The Chilean has signed a contract extension which runs until 2017.

Assistant manager Ruben Cousillas, goalkeeping coach Xabier Mancisidor and fitness coach Jose Cabello were also handed new deals.

The Citizens kick-off their Premier League campaign on Monday when they face West Bromwich Albion away from home.

"I was used to the speculation but now it is important to focus on the season," Pellegrini is quoted as saying by Goal.

"I am happy here at Manchester City. I know in this profession you need results. It is important to have a good season.

"For me the first season was more difficult than last. We had to replace a manager [Roberto Mancini] that the fans loved who had won titles.

"Last season was strange what happened after January [when City fell away in the title race].

"I hope this year we return to being a successful winning team."
