The Chilean outlines his plans at Eastlands.
Newly appointed Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has given his first press conference at the club and has revealed the targets for the upcoming season.
Whilst City failed to retain their Premier League crown last year and have floundered so far in the Champions League, Pellegrini is confident they have the capability to win both.
“Five or six teams are always trying to win the Premier League and I’ll try to do that with Manchester City,” the Chilean told journalists.
“I think that the Premier League is so important, as is the Champions League. I know the last two years weren’t good for Manchester City in Europe, but I’ll try to change that.
“When Manchester City won the Premier League was one of the most important days for this club. I will try to repeat it.”
The 59-year-old is giving nothing away having not even taken charge of the side in a match yet, but with a trophy-less campaign in 2012/13 costing Roberto Mancini his job at the Etihad, Pellegrini is under no illusions what is required this season.
In order to do this City have already significantly strengthened their squad, with Fernandino arriving from Shakhtar Donetsk for £30m and Sevilla’s Jesus Navas being a £14.9m acquisition.
Yet following the sale of Carlos Tevez to Juventus the Citizens have been left with just Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko as senior strikers at Eastlands.
Pellegrini is keeping no secrets that the club will be bringing in more forwards, although may have to choose between Jovetic and Osvaldo with only one place left.
“We have two strikers at the moment and we need another one.”
