Manchester City’s new manager Manuel Pellegrini has spoken to the press today and has showed he is a perfect match for his new club, making it clear he fully appreciates that playing against United is their cup final.

“I know that the most important thing for all the fans is to beat Manchester United and if I am here it is because I am sure we will do it.”

Like is the usual case with their new signings bleating on about United, the manager has followed suit. Out of interest, David Moyes didn’t mention City once in his press conference last Friday, let alone claim that beating City was the most important thing for our fans.

Same ol’ City.
