Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has defended the lack of English players in his squad.
Pellegrini insists signing English talent is too expensive.
He said: â€œI donâ€™t think anyone at the club is worrying about where the players are from.
â€œItâ€™s not a thing of Ânationality. Itâ€™s a thing of the best team. A lot of teams are like that. Maybe sometimes teams in Spain donâ€™t play with Spanish players.
â€œItâ€™s very difficult to have important English players in every team. They are very expensive and you donâ€™t have too many English players.
â€œAll the important teams have English players in their side but, if you want to buy an English player, it is difficult."
