Malaga coach Pellegrini full of praise for Athletic Bilbao's Bielsa

Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini is a big fan of Athletic Bilbao counterpart Marcelo Bielsa.

The two South Americans have been a great success in Europe.

"He's a fantastic coach and has had great success everywhere, in Argentina, Chile and Spain," Pellegrini told a press conference.

"He always instills certain characteristics on his teams. Unfortunately, Athletic haven't had the best season this year, but they'll always be a dangerous rival who focuses on the attack, with strong determination to get a good result.

"I wish him all the best, and hope that after this match they can achieve some important wins."
