Man City not scared of facing Real in CL semis, says Pellegrini

London : Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has said that his side hold no fear of facing Real Madrid after being drawn to play against the Spanish giants in the semifinals of the Champions League.

It seemed that Pellegrini, who was sacked by Real in 2010 after one season in charge, is eager to take revenge from his former club by knocking them out of the Champions League.

The 62-year-old said Madrid might be the most important team in the world, but City also consist of some really good players who can add trophies to their shelf, the Mirror reported.

Hoping to see the Etihad Stadium club in the finals of the championship, Pellegrini asserted that his side are going to play with the same positive goal scoring approach as they have been playing so far.

The Chilean manager, however, admitted he was relieved to see Barcelona out of the Champions League, pointing that Real do not pose the same threat as that of the former.

City will play their first leg of the semi-final clash against Real at home ground on April 27. (ANI)
