Risk brings reward for Pellegrini

Published Add your comment

Villarreal coach Manuel Pellegrini was pleased to see his selection gamble pay off against Recreativo Huelva on Wednesday night as the Yellow Submarine guarenteed themselves a top-two finish for the first time in the club´s history.

Pellegrini made four changes to his starting line-up from Sunday´s 2-0 win over Getafe but it was business as usual with Villarreal recording their fourth consecutive win thanks to second-half goals from Nihat Kahveci and Guille Franco.

"It was a risk to play with several men who did not play on Sunday knowing how tough this game would be. We took a risk and it came out well for us," said Pellegrini, whose side play Espanyol and Deportivo La Coruna in their final two matches.
