Man City's Pellegrini not satisfied with two trophies

Manuel Pellegrini insists Manchester City will begin planning for next season very swiftly after clinching the 2013/14 Premier League title.

The Eastlands club made it two trophies for the campaign when beating West Ham United 2-0 on Sunday to end up two points clear of Liverpool, adding the premiership to the Capital One Cup they won in March.

After the match, first-year City boss Pellegrini said he will start to look ahead to 2014/15 this week following the celebrations as he looks to bring more silverware to the Etihad Stadium.

"Big teams cannot be satisfied just with one title," he told Sky Sports.

"It is very important that we have won two titles in the year, we must celebrate today and tomorrow. On Tuesday we will start working for next season, because for the club and the players it is so important."

He added: "This was a special season for us, because we have not been at the top of the table because we had games postponed and we didn't start very well.

"One of the most important things we did this year was when we finished playing our sixth game away and we had just one point from 18.

"I told the players we have to change (the results), but we have to play this way, because I think it's the way you must play.

"They believed in me and they continued playing and I think from then until the end we are the team with the most points playing away."
