Pellegrini: Chelsea is a 'Little, Rich Horse'

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini, who won his second consecutive Manager of the Month award in the Premier League on Friday, dismissed Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho’s claim that Chelsea is a “little horse” in the Premier League title race. The Chilean noted that Chelsea’s significant investment in its squad during the transfer window renders his remark debatable.

"Maybe it is a small horse if the manager thinks like that," Pellegrini said. “It can be a little horse, but very rich. This is the team that has spent most money in the last 10 years, it is the team that spent most money this year, and the team that spent the most money in the transfer window. So, little, but rich."

He went on to say that having won both of its Premier League games against City this season, Chelsea is clearly in contention for the title. "I think he is favorite. He thinks, if he wins, he will have the merits but, if he loses, he does not have responsibility.”
