Manuel Pellegrini insisted his focus was on Malaga this weekend amid growing reports that he is to be the next Manchester City coach.
Pellegrini seems set to replace Roberto Mancini but was more concerned about his current side after they drew 0-0 with fellow Andalucians Sevilla.
“There are a lot of rumours,” the Chilean said. “The coaching staff and players are focusing on qualifying the team for the Europa League. I hope in the next 15 days planning will take place for what is going to happen next year and we’ll see what happens.”
