Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini insists he has what it takes to win silverware at the Etihad.
He lacks a major trophy on his c.v. from his time in Spain, however — a point that was put to him bluntly by one reporter yesterday.
"I won a lot of trophies in South America," said Pellegrini. "It is impossible in Spain.
"I started with Villarreal and it is very difficult for them to win a title, to reach the quarters, semis of the Champions League and go second in the League.
"Malaga, though, is the same as Villarreal. You can’t win the title with Malaga."
