Jose Mourinho criticised by Pellegrini?

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has taken a swipe at Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, suggesting he does not know when to keep quiet.

Pellegrini was famously a victim of Mourinho’s sharp tongue when he managed Malaga and the Portuguese was in charge at his former club Real Madrid.

After it was put to him that his Chilean counterpart has led los Blancos to a record points haul and second place in La Liga, Mourinho poked fun at him by claiming he would have gone to manage another top club if Real Madrid sacked him, not Malaga.

Mourinho’s comments were put to Pellegrini ahead of the match between Chelsea and Manchester City on Sunday and the Citizens boss replied with what could be interpreted at a criticism of Mourinho’s outspoken nature.

“I don’t know him as a manager. I know his career. He has a lot of titles and maybe there is a different way to think of his profession,” he told reporters.

“There are different ways to play. There are different ways to go about what you say, what you don’t say. For me I don’t want to comment.”

Manchester City travel to Stamford Bridge for the Premier League evening kick-off on Sunday and Pellegrini will be hoping to come away with the three points that would see them leapfrog Mourinho’s side into third.

While Chelsea know only a win will do if they are going to move back up to second ahead of Liverpool and two points behind leaders Arsenal.
