Real Madrid coach Pellegrini: I do not fear for my job

Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini insists he doesn't feel any pressure from inside the club.

Defeat to Champions League opponents Lyon in midweek has sparked speculation that Pellegrini could be soon shown the door.

But he said: "Everyone interprets things the way they want. I do not feel even the slightest pressure about dismissal or change. If so, I would. I have a good relationship with the club and no fear.

"Last week there were some claims about a conflict between (sports director Jorge) Valdano and I and now the same is reported with the president (Florentino Perez). I do not have to send any message to anyone.

"There is no tension."
