Manuel Pellegrini: I don't think we have failed in Europe in recent campaigns


Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has rejected claims that his side have failed in Europe recent campaigns.

The Citizens have kicked off their Champions League campaign with a home defeat against Juventus and will be desperate to take all three points when they take on Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday.

"I expect a very good game against a very big club [tomorrow]," Pellegrini said.

"We want to recover the points we dropped at home, but we must play with a very high quality. It is not a final but it is a very important game for us.

"I don't think we have failed in Europe.

"We have qualified for the knockout stages in my two seasons here, and then we lost to Barcelona who are the best team in the world.

"We have beaten Bayern Munich twice. Last season we won our last two games against Bayern Munich and Roma so we know how to do it. This season we lost to Juventus – a strange game."
