Man City boss on AVB: 'He didn't have time'

Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini, who led his team to a 6-0 thrashing of Spurs last month, has spoken out about Villas-Boas' dismissal:

Always when a manager is sacked, I am surprised, especially when it is an important manager.

He is a very young manager, he has done very well with all the teams (he has managed) - Porto and here in England.

He didn't have time in both clubs but I am absolutely sure he will continue his career."

– Manuel Pellegrini
