The English giant Manchester City is thinking about a significant change in their managerial department. Present head coach Manuel Pellegrini is going through a hard time as he is gradually losing sight of prestigious trophies of this season. Man City want new manager. So they are considering about a new bargeman who might fulfill their criteria. They are reportedly keeping a close eye on Diego Simeone as he is regarding a move in the English Premier League.
Pellegrini passed a successful year achieving both league and Capital One Cup trophies. With 63% win in his managing period, the 61 year old Chilean can be considered as a successful manager. He reclaimed the league title for Man City from their bitter rival Manchester United.
But things have started to change when City knocked out of both F.A Cup and Capital One Cup this season. Their 2-0 defeat at Etihad against Newcastle waved them a good-bye from Football League Cup. But Pellegrini received the biggest shock when Middlesbrough snatched an amazing win by dumping the Noisy member of Manchester. Their recent defeat against Barcelona also confirmed their exit from the Champions League. Man City has already out of three major cup run which has endangered Pellegrini’s existence at Eihad. Premier League table standings do not show the reflection of City Authority’s demand as they are 6 points behind the league leader Chelsea. It will be a tough task for City if they want to deduce the gap with only 8 league matches in remaining this season.
City might try to bring a suitable change in head coach position as they are looking to sign Europe’s top bosses. They have showed their interest in Atletico’s successful gaffer Simeone. Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti are also on their radar.
Diego Simeone, the former Atleti captain, has appeared as a sensation by winning La Liga title for the Atletico last season. He has broken the two team tradition since he destroyed the stronghold of Barcelona and Real Madrid. He single handedly guided Atletico to a new era where they are no longer a small team. The Rojiblancos has come out from the shadow of their wealthy rival Real, under his command. Last season they also reached at the finale of Champions League, where they were defeated by their city rival.
Atletico wants the majestic Argentine at Calderon as they are ready to offer a contract extension with him. They would like to keep him till 2020 with the assurance that he will have the upper hand in club’s player dealings. This offer will include a get-out clause which is causing City’s attention. After winning against Bayer Levercusen in the Champions League, Simeone’s sister and agent, Natalia said that his brother might prefer to stay at Calderon.
Nothing is certain until the season gets over. City might trust Pellegrini if they fail to land Simeone. Snubbing the Chilean will definitely be a drastic decision as he brought two major trophies last year. But Simeone’s presence can carry a powerful vibe in the morale of the team.
