City confirm Pellegrini appointment
Manchester City have finally confirmed the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager.
The Chilean's arrival has been widely expected since 2012 Premier League-winning boss Roberto Mancini was sacked a month ago.
The 59-year-old has agreed a three-year deal at the Etihad Stadium and will officially take up his post on June 24.
Pellegrini arrives from Spanish side Malaga, whom he guided to the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season.
He said: "I am delighted to accept this hugely-exciting opportunity.
"The club has a clear vision for success both on and off the pitch and I am committed to making a significant contribution.
"Everything is in place for Manchester City to continue to be successful and I am excited to be able to work with such a talented squad, the executive team and the board to deliver for fans who are renowned for their steadfast support."
