New Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini held his first press conference as manager of the Sky Blues on Wednesday, since signing from Malaga in June to replace ousted manager Roberto Mancini.

The new boss insisted that the 2011/12 champions has not placed its priority over any trophy stating that the club will have to “improve” on last season’s trophyless form.

“We don’t have one priority more than the other, Manchester City need to improve on how they’ve performed in the Champions League, while the Premier League is very important,” Pellegrini told news media.

City finished 11 points behind rivals Manchester United in last season’s race for title and failed to go beyond the group stage of the Champions League.

He promised fans to expect a different way of playing in the coming years, saying: “One of the reasons I am here is for the way we play. Man City fans will see a different way of playing than they have seen in other years.

“We will try to be an attractive team.”

Born in Santiago, Chile, Pellegrini, 59, has taken charge of 10 teams in total including Villareal (2004-09), Real Madrid (2009-10) and Malaga. He has won league titles in Ecuador and Argentina and the Intertoto Cup with Villareal.

‘The Engineer’ as he’s fondly called is expected to help City regain their status as titles contender and the manager agreed that the battle for Premier League supremacy has evolved with a host of other teams formerly deemed unfit for the top four now gunning for the prize.

“Here in the Premier League we have Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham- five or six teams who are trying to win the league,” he said.

“The league is so important. We will try to repeat the win of the Premier League of a couple of seasons ago.”
