semi-final second leg clash with Real Madrid,
Pellegrini opted to rest some of his best
players in what turned out to be an inept
performance from his players bar Iheanacho.



“It’s very important for a player to score goals.
I was happy with the way he (Iheanacho)
played today. I’m happy for him with the goals
that he scored,” Pellegrini told City’s official
website.
“In the first half we had clear options to score
so they scored the two goals but we got back
in it with Kelechi.”
Disappointed to lose today, we all come
back stronger #CMONCITY https://t.co/
