Manchester City's boss Manuel Pellegrini has hit out at the state of the pitch ahead of the Champions League match in Moscow tomorrow.
Manchester City and Manuel Pellegrini face European champions Bayern Munich tonight with a ringing endorsement from Pep Guardiola.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says he is 'open' to new signings before the start of the new Premier League season.
Manuel Pellegrini believes England boss Roy Hodgson is right to back Joe Hart - but won't confirm when he might return for Manchester City.
England goalkeeper Hart lost his place in the City side after a series of errors, sitting out recent Premier League and Champions League games.
That raised further questions over his position in the national side but Hodgson - although revealing he intends to look at other keepers this month - has made clear Hart remains his number one.
Hart has not played since his last-minute mix-up with Matija Nastasic condemned City to defeat at Chelsea a fortnight ago but will start one of the upcoming friendlies against Pellegrini's native Chile or Germany.
Pellegrini said: "I am happy, absolutely - he deserves to be in the squad."
