Malaga coach Pellegrini: I didn't want to lose Monreal to Arsenal

Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini admits he's frustrated losing Nacho Monreal to Arsenal.

Pellegrini says he didn't want to see the fullback sold.

"His departure is a great disappointment for our team," said Pellegrini. "He was a very important player for us, who always played at a high level.

"Unfortunately, the club's finances are not in order, so I will have to accept it."
