Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has been forced to apologise after a media crackdown which followed his early announcement of a move to the English Premier League.
It is understood the move has piled pressure on the likes of Arsene Wenger and Louis van Gaal and most especially manager of his supposed destination Manchester City.
However City boss Manuel Pellegrini claims ahead of his side’s clash with Everton on Wednesday that Guardiola’s apology isn’t necessary as he feels no pressure at the Etihad Stadium.
“No, I’m not worried about that so I don’t think that he has to apologise for me,” Pellgerini said when asked if he accepts the apology.
“I have nothing to say about that. It’s the same thing I said three or four weeks ago, I’m not worried about the future.
“My duty is to try to do the best work at Manchester City. My target is to try to win the Premier League this year, to be involved in every competition until the end and try to win another competition more.
“If after that I finish the year with those achievements I will be very happy. In that moment I will start thinking about the future.”
