Manuel Pellegrini: Champions League football for next season is a must for Manchester City


Manchester City need to be in next season's Champions League, boss Manuel Pellegrini said.

The Citizens need a draw to end the season in fourth place and qualify for the play-off of the competition as they prepare to welcome Spain's Pep Guardiola as their new manager.

"We've been in the Champions League places all season so I hope we can do it with a win this weekend," Pellegrini explained.

"I want to finish playing the way we did against Arsenal. I was disappointed with the way we played against Real Madrid as that's not our team.

"The game [against Swansea City] is very difficult. Maybe after the Arsenal game everyone thought we were eliminated, but now it has flipped around the other way so we must be very careful.

"Yes [I enjoyed my time in England], it's the best league in the world, the stadia are always full, it's competitive with around six teams vying for the title.

"It's [this is] a Club that is growing every year, not just in results. We have another style of play, we are a team that takes more risks and scores a lot of goals.

"I am sure in the future this Club will continue growing."
