Manuel Pellegrini: Club made mistake is announcing Pep Guardiola's so early in the season


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has criticised the Club for announcing new manager Pep Guardiola in February.

The Spaniard will take over from the Chilean in the summer after signing a three-year contract with the Citizens.

City will almost surely end fourth in the Premier League despite only managing a draw away at Swansea City.

"I wanted to win the Premier League this season," Pellegrini is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"But the atmosphere from February when the club announced the new manager was maybe not the best atmosphere, we lost two important games at home when we were three points behind the leaders.

"The only option we had today was that we needed to get the point to get Champions League for next year.

"I don't have a shirt because I don't play, so I gave my jacket to the fans, I felt they have really supported me in three seasons here and support me in every game which is important. I can confirm my jacket was empty."
