Pellegrini: One Trophy is Not Enough

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester City won the English League Cup on Sunday, coming from behind to beat Sunderland, 3-1, at Wembley in a match in which U.S. international striker Jozy Altidore failed to make the bench for Sunderland. Superb second-half goals from Yaya Toure, Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas followed Fabio Borini’s 10th minute strike.

When asked if the season would be a success if City only won one trophy, Coach Manuel Pellegrini said, "We will evaluate the season when the season ends in May. We won today just one trophy but nobody can think that's enough. Why? I don't think top players or an important group can be satisfied with one trophy."

City, which is in the FA Cup quarterfinal against Wigan Athletic, and is still in contention for the Premier League title, is targeting an unprecedented domestic treble. Asked about his team’s chance of winning all three competitions, Pellegrini said: "We are going to try. It's not easy. We have respect for Wigan. We know what happened with Wigan last year [when Wigan beat City in the FA Cup final]. We are going to try to do it, of course." City is also still alive in the UEFA Champions League, although it trails Barcelona after losing the first-leg of its two-game series, 2-0, at home.

The League Cup is the Chilean Pellegrini’s first major title after a decade coaching in Europe.
