I manage a great group, a great institution - Man City's Pellegrini

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was full of praise for both his players and the club following their Premier League triumph on Sunday.

The Citizens defeated West Ham United 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium to clinch the 2014 league title in Pellegrini's first season at the helm, which prompted acclaim from the humble Chilean.

"They are a very special group; they were in a difficult moment when I arrived here. They always believed what I tell them, the way I play, the way I like," he told Sky Sports.

"It is very special because in my first year here in England it is not easy. But I think that I manage a great group of players, a great institution and great fans.

"When you achieve the title the whole year comes down to the hard work that we did during the difficult moments of the year, but I think that this was the best team in the Premier League."
