Ex-Man Utd striker Forlan backing Pellegrini for Man City success
He said: "Manuel is an intelligent man who works hard. It's not easy to be a good manager, but he makes it look easy.
"He is calm and measured. He'll speak to you and take an interest. If things are not going so well, then he'll talk to you and lift your confidence. We all respected his decisions and had a happy changing room. We were a team in the truest sense."
