Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says he has what it takes to transform them into Champions League contenders.

Pellegrini insists he knows the changes which need to be made to prevent his side crashing out at the group stage for the third successive year.

The former Real Madrid coach said: "With Manchester City, we can do better than I did in Spain - although it's not easy to get in the semi or the quarter-final twice.

"I think we can win it. This club needs to do that - at least get passed the first stage and our squad is better than that.

"I know the style we need to play in Europe.

"It must be different because, in the last two years, the club did not make it out of the group stages."
