Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini: ‘We’re only thinking of Aston Villa, not Bayern Munich
Nobody at Manchester City is letting their thoughts wander towards next week’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.
That’s according to boss Manuel Pellegrini who says that he and his players are entirely focused on their game against Aston Villa.
He said: “I am sure that nobody of us is thinking about Bayern Munich. We are all thinking about Aston Villa.
“We know it is a strong team playing at home, so we need to play a very good game if we want to win, and we need to win away, no?”
The Chilean also praised captain Vincent Kompany following his return from injury.
Asked why City looked so much better with the Belgian defender in the side, he replied: “Well, because he is a very good player, and the other teams know that he’s the captain, he’s a very good player.
“So every time he plays he demonstrates how good a player he is. So that’s why he gives confidence for the whole team.”
