Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is confident he still has the backing of the owners.

While City's recent slide might look ominous to some for Pellegrini, reports have suggested City's owners are going to stick with him.

And asked about that on Friday, the 60-year-old Chilean - who has guided the club to the Capital One Cup and the knockout stages of the Champions League this season, his first in charge - said: "It is not a problem in this moment.

"I never heard anything in terms of a complaint.

"All of us want to win as much as we can but I haven't had any talks about that and I am not thinking about that."
