Pellegrini targets Champions League

Published Add your comment

Villarreal coach Manuel Pellegrini has dismissed his side´s chances of landing the Primera Liga title.

The former River Plate and San Lorenzo boss believes Saturday´s 2-0 defeat at Sevilla, a result which saw them fall seven points behind leaders Real Madrid, means they are now out of contention. But the 54-year old has instead set his players a minimum target of achieving Champions League qualification.

"The chances we have in the Liga are the ones mathematics indicate," he said.
