Manuel Pellegrini’s managerial job at Manchester City is rumored to be at risk after the Chilean coach lost against CSKA Moscow in their latest Champions League encounter and now the chances of Manchester city advancing to the next stages of the European tournament are extremely slim.
Manchester City are the current champions of the Premier League and if Pellegrini can somehow manage to retain the English League title then it will still be a fairly good season but things are also looking to be difficult in the Premier League as Chelsea and Southampton are ahead of Manchester City and the recent defeats against West Ham United and Newcastle United has put Manuel Pellegrini under heavy pressure.
If Manuel Pellegrini is not able on protecting the Premier League title of Manchester City or if more disappointing results continue emerging then Pellegrini is already being rumored to be sacked and replaced by Athletic Madrid’s Diego Simeone.
Diego Simeone is an experienced manager that was able to win the Spanish League title in the previous season as he snatched the silverware from under the hands of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Bayern Munich’s Pep Guardiola is another manager that is being rumored to turn into the next coach of Manchester City if Pellegrini is not able to win a major piece of silverware in this season, however, Pep Guardiola is the highest paid manager in the world of football as he earns £12.5m which means that the head authorities of Manchester City will have to go deep in their pockets in order to even lure the attention of Guardiola away from his current club, Bayern Munich.
All of these are nothing but rumors and none of these could happen as long as Manuel Pellegrini is able to make a genuine title defending season but it hasn’t been happening as Chelsea has a healthy lead over the team of Manuel Pellegrini and Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea aren’t showing any signs of stopping or slowing down.
