Pires played for Pellegrini at Villarreal.
âWhen I went to Spain from ÂArsenal, I was a wide player,â said Pires. âBut Pellegrini told me he Âwanted to me play inside and deeper. And it worked.
"He also got the best from Marcos Senna. In fact, he developed his game so much that Senna became an international with Spain under Pellegrini.
âIf the City players follow the rules, then they will have no problems with Pellegrini.
âIf they donât, they will have a problem. As Riquelme found out, thereâs only one winner when you take on Pellegrini.â
