Manchester City could sack their manager Manuel Pellegrini, if the club wouldn’t be able to make into the top four, according to The Guardian.
We can see that the City boss is fighting for his career at the Etihad Stadium after a disappointing performance of the club, who lose six of their previous eight games in all competitions.
The report has suggested that the club’s board are ready to sack the Chilean if they fear Champions League qualification is in danger, putting stress on the 61-year-old manager for their next match against West Ham United this Saturday.
Patrick Vieira, who is the current manager of the City’s reserves squad – would probably take in-charge for the remaining games, just like Ryan Giggs did when David Moyes was sacked by Manchester United last year.
The reigning Premier League champions are currently sit in fourth spot, with 61 points – just four points above fifth-placed Liverpool.
The pressure on Pellegrini’s position will be increase, especially if City were to suffer defeat at their home ground on Saturday.
