Pellegrini reps refuse to deny Man City move

Representatives of Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini are being coy over reports of talks with Manchester City.

Representatives of Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini are being coy over reports of talks with Manchester City.

The Daily Mail says suggestions in Spain that City’s key decision-makers have been in talks with Malaga boss Pellegrini were not denied by the Chilean’s representatives last night as the odds on the 59-year-old taking over from Roberto Mancini fell dramatically with bookmakers.

Mancini yesterday admitted his job was in jeopardy, saying: "I want to do well, but I know what can happen in football. If we win the Cup most people would say we did a good season, but at Inter Milan I won seven trophies in four years and they still sacked me.

"In football, you have to wait and see what happens, no matter how well you think you are doing."
