Man City Eyeing Pep As Pellegrini Replacement?

Manchester city are reportedly lining up Pep Guardiola as a replacement for Manuel Pellegrini, should the Chilean end the season without silverware.

Pellegrini has come under massive pressure at City after losing two key games last week. First, his side were beaten 2-1 at home by FC Barcelona in the Champions League, and then they lost 2-1 to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday to fall off the pace in the title race.

City need a miracle to overturn the first-leg home defeat in Europe’s elite competition, as they look likely to be eliminated at the last-16 for a second successive year.

Following their defeat to Liverpool, the Citizens also need to rely on at least three slips by Premier League leaders Chelsea, while they would have to win all their remaining games.

English media report that should Pellegrini fail to celebrate a glorious comeback in either the Champions League or Premier League, his days at the Etihad Stadium are numbered.

Following the Capital One Cup title and Premier League triumph in his first season at the club, it seems as though Citizens have gone backwards this time around.

With Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain at the club, Pep Guardiola’s name is always in the mix for possible replacements after the three Spaniards successfully worked together at Barcelona.

However, Guardiola still has another year until his contract expires at Bayern Munich and it is questionable whether he will leave the German giants.
