Manuel Pellegrini: To win a title in Wembley is very special


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was delighted after his side won the first trophy of the season at Wembley against Liverpool.

The Citizens won the penalty shootout by 3-1 to win their fourth League Cup title.

They will face the Reds for a second time in four days on Wednesday as they will be hoping to move closer to leaders Leicester City in their quest to win the Premier League title.

"We deserved to win the game," Pellegrini told Sky Sports.

"We missed chances but if you asked me which way I'd prefer to win I'd prefer to win it is this way.

"I'd rather lose the title than lose my word.

"A lot of media were waiting to criticise me if Willy Caballero makes a mistake. I had a lot of trust in Caballero. I am very pleased for all the players and staff but more for him because he deserved it.

"We are working very hard. I don't remember Willy making one save in the 90 minutes. They draw in the last eight minutes and it was not easy for me to make a change but we finished the better.

"To win a title in Wembley is very special. We are not thinking about what we can win, we are thinking about the next game - against Liverpool - we are nine points behind the leader but we have a game in hand.

"I had a difficult decision with the FA Cup but I think this title and the win in Kiev support my decision."
