UEFA will investigate Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini's comments following Tuesday's home defeat to Barcelona. The Chilean hit out at referee Jonas Eriksson over a number of decisions and appeared to question the Swede's impartiality during the Champions League Last-16 tie.
In a statement, the governing body said: "UEFA has mandated a disciplinary inspector to commence an investigation concerning the press interviews given by the Manchester City FC head coach Manuel Luis Pellegrini to media after the match against Barcelona.
"Based on the outcome of this investigation, a decision will be taken on whether disciplinary proceedings will be opened."
