‘It’s not just about winning the ball’ – Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini on the new challenges
Posted On August 2, 2021
Manuel Peligrini has insisted City’s new era will be defined by winning the “ball”.
He admitted the side have not been as dominant as some expected, but they have shown a willingness to work harder and “be aggressive”.
“The important thing is that the team is in the position to be able to say, ‘Yes, we want to win the ball more.
That’s why we are going to attack.
That is the goal of our team,'” Pellegrsini said.
“And we have a goal to be successful.
We are not a team that wins everything.”
The coach also suggested the club’s new focus on youth is having a positive impact.
“I think that’s something we have to look at, how do we do that?
Because I think the youth is a great resource to have,” he said.
