He told a press conference: “I have answered this many times (questions about City). Once we have played Deportivo we will see about my future and where I am going. I haven’t signed any contract yet.” Press Associationcenter_img Manuel Pellegrini, the favourite to succeed Roberto Mancini as manager of Manchester City, has refused to talk about a move to the Etihad Stadium.last_img read more
