Chilean set to be confirmed in his new role next week.
Incoming Manchester City head coach Manuel Pellegrini has vowed to bring some excitement back to Eastlands next season, reports the Daily Mirror.
The experienced Chilean is shortly expected to be confirmed as the successor to the recently departed Roberto Mancini in the City hot seat from next campaign, with Pellegrini set to oversee his final match in charge of current club Malaga in La Liga on Saturday night.
And after that, it is understood that the mega-rich Premier League outfit will officially unveil the former Villarreal and Real Madrid boss at the start of next week.
One of the reasons that the popular Mancini was given his matching orders by City at the end of last season after four years at the helm in the north west was the perception by the club’s hierarchy that for all the many millions of pounds that the Italian had lavished on the team, they were still perceived to be boring and functional at times.
However, Pellegrini has vowed to change that, saying: “Manchester City have offered me a great project. Hopefully, it becomes official.
“If it happens, Manchester City will have a team that will play very good football. City have a great team and a clear plan on how things will develop. This motivates me.”
