These are my last hours at Malaga, says Pellegrini
Manuel Pellegrini says he is in his "last hours" at Malaga as he nears a switch to Manchester City in the summer.
The Chilean has been in charge at La Rosaleda for two seasons but is widely expected to replace Roberto Mancini, who was sacked by Premier League outfit recently.
"Professionally, I'm going through my last hours at Malaga," he is quoted as saying by AS.
"Sunday will be my last game as coach of Malaga at La Rosaleda. It will be very emotional and I hoped to leave the club qualified for Europe with the mission accomplished by the project's luck changed.
"The agreement with the club has been rewarding and fulfilling. Everyone has the right to move on. I'm not looking for economic ambition but a sporting project which allows me to feel fulfilled."
City ended the season without silverware, finishing as runners-up in both the Premier League and FA Cup.
Pellegrini has previously coached the likes of Villarreal and Real Madrid.
