PELLEGRINI: IMPROVING CITY CAN WIN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

The Premier League side progressed to the semi-finals of Europe’s elite club competition with a 1-0 win over PSG on
Tuesday and the Chilean feels they can lift the trophy. Manuel Pellegrini believes Manchester City ‘s Champions
League victory over Paris Saint-Germain serves to answer their critics this season, while underlining the club’s ambitions for European glory.
Following last week’s pulsating 2-2 draw at the Parc des Princes, Kevin De Bruyne settled a tense affair in City’s favour with 14 minutes remaining at the Etihad Stadium on
Tuesday. The 1-0 win means City move into the semi-finals of the Uefa champions league for the first time.
Pellegrini, who will make way for Pep Guardiola at the end of the campaign, understands the scrutiny attracted by City’s
lavish pursuit of success under owner Sheikh Mansour and is keen to push their Champions League run on towards
May’s final in Milan.
“It is one of the targets of this club to try and improve every year,” he told reporters. “It is not easy because you have very strong teams in Europe but I am sure that the target of this club is to win the Champions League, he added. Of course [City could win it] this season or next season said the chilean.
