Pellegrini: City Didn’t Deserve To Lose


Pellegrini has blamed City’s loss to Juventus at their opening champions league game on luck, as they lost a 1-0 lead.

City went ahead in the 57th minute thanks to a Chiellini own goal, I’m sure Pellegrini will call this good luck.

But goals from Mandzukic and Morata rendered it moot and now City have suffered their first loss of the season.

“It’s disappointing, I don’t think we deserved to lose,” he told BT Sport.

“We had better chances and played better than Juventus. It was a typical Champions League game, both teams didn’t create many chances but we had more possession.

“It was not a tactical problem, Juventus just scored two beautiful goals.”

“I think the Italian team played very well, they defended well and I think they were lucky,” he added.

“I don’t think we played so bad. We missed a lot of chances.

“We just have to be strong and try to bounce back in the next game. We’ve been brave and we have to learn from Europe and try to do it better.”
