Chilean calm through the speculative storm.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has insisted that he is remaining calm despite the growing pressure to save his job, the Daily Star reports.
Pellegrini is currently overseeing City’s worst run of form for five years as they continue to fall behind Chelsea in the race for the Premier League title.
Having not won in their previous five games, they capped off their woeful run by crashing out of the FA Cup to Championship side Middlesbrough last week.
City are now seven points behind the Blues and reports linking them with a move for Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone have subsequently intensified.
However, despite all this, Pellegrini is insisting that he is still calm and focussed on catching up with the current leaders.
“I never feel pressure, I repeat the same answer for the same question for the last two years,” he said.
“The only pressure is my own pressure that I made for myself when I don’t feel the team is playing well.
“I think we are in a normal position, we are involved in the Champions League and if we win at Stoke we will have just one point less than last season.
“We have a lot of things to think about, things more important than pressure. I don’t feel any pressure inside the club or outside.”
