Pellegrini Defends Team Selection After Heavy Man City Defeat

Manchester City went out of the FA Cup this season after suffering a 5-1 defeat from Chelsea and that result puts Manuel Pellegrini under heavy criticism for playing young players instead of putting out a strong squad.

However, Pellegrini defended his decision to rest his main squad stating that they have bigger  commitment with Champions League football this midweek.

The tactician instead criticize the scheduling from English FA, asking that they should be giving more help towards teams who are playing in Champions League.

Moreover, Pellegrini added that with several important players are still out due to injury, Man City just don’t have enough option aside from playing their young players.
