Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini week has gone from bad to worse.
After defeat in the last minute at Chelsea, it's been revealed Pellegrini has been refused membership at his local golf club!
The Daily Mail says keen golfer Pellegrini, who is said to check out local golf courses as one of his first moves on changing clubs, wants to join the exclusive nine-hole Hale club close to where he’s planning to set up home outside Manchester.
And the Chilean, who has enjoyed rounds as a guest at Hale, was expecting to receive membership straight away due to his high position in football, especially as the joining fee of £1,245 and annual subscription of £925 is hardly an issue.
But Pellegrini was told that he would have to join the waiting list, just as everybody else, before being considered for membership.
