Manchester City manager will be sacked if he doesn't deliver title

Published 1 Comments

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini will be sacked if he doesn't deliver the Premier League title this season - according to Rodney Marsh.

The Chilean secured the Capital One Cup with a 3-1 win over Sunderland earlier this month but has had a tough time since.

Manchester City looked well placed for a historic quadruple just a few weeks back but exited the FA Cup at the hands of Wigan, and Pellegrini saw his team crash out of the Champions League against Barcelona last night.

Now Marsh, who spent four years with Manchester City between 1972 and 1976, believes the former Real Madrid boss will be shown the door if he doesn't deliver the Premier League title at the first attempt.

"If Manchester City don’t win the Premier League then Pellegrini will get sacked,” he told TalkSPORT. “The standards are so high now. Roberto Mancini won the Premier League and then the next season he got sacked.

“There’s every chance that, if they don’t land the title, he’ll be sacked.”

The 2012 champions currently sit nine points behind leaders Chelsea in fourth, but crucially they have three games in hand on their rivals and no other distractions between now and May.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho remains adamant that Manchester City are still favourites to win the title, a sentiment echoed today by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.
