Clichy admits that the appointment of Pellegrini has been welcomed by the City squad.
Clichy said: "Having a new coach is the most important thing because everybody wants to work hard for him and show that they deserve a place in the squad.
"From what we know from his time working with Villarreal, Real Madrid and Malaga, he is just extraordinary and he has had some fantastic results. We all have complete trust and faith in him, he is very intelligent and really thinks about every session that we do in training."
