Pellegrini: Aguero To Keep Quadruple Dream Alive

Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini, is hopeful that his main-striker, Sergio Aguero, will quickly return to his form and wants to keep Manchester City’s quadruple dream alive.

With new injury worries around Samir Nasri (long-term), Yaya Toure and Edin Dzeko, Pellegrini is happy to welcome Aguero back to the City squad for their FA Cup replay with Blackburn Rovers tonight.

“He is a very important player for us. It doesn’t matter that we are scoring a lot of goals,” Pellegrini said.

“Sergio will always be an important player for us, not only because of his goals but he gives us a lot of play during the match.

“Of course, it is very important he gets back to full fitness because we have not only important games but a lot of games and all of them are important for us.

“You never know but I hope that he will come back the same way as before he was injured. He was in a good moment and maybe he needs two or three games to return to that level, but Sergio will do it.”

The Chilean also commented on Manchester City’s quadruple chase, with them still being in both English Cups, the Champions League as well as in contention for the Premier League title. The Citizens are the only side who can still win four trophies and create history this season.

“It’s very difficult but we will try,” Pellegrini added.

“It’s important to have the mentality at least to try. During the season, with injuries and the amount of games we have to play, it’s very difficult and that’s why no one has done it before.

“But you must have the mentality to at least try to do it and that’s what we’re trying to do at this moment.

“We’re not thinking about winning the four competitions, we’re just thinking about Blackburn in the FA Cup and then to try and win against Cardiff on Saturday in the Premier League.”

So far, Liverpool in 1984 and Manchester United in 1999 are the only English sides to win a treble, which included a major European title, but no club has ever won the quadruple in England.
