Manuel Pellegrini appointed new Man City boss.

Manuel Pellegrini has become the latest product of the Spanish football boom to be picked off by the riches of the Premier League as Manchester City have handpicked the Malaga boss as the man to take them to the next level in the UEFA Champions League after a couple of disappointing European campaigns under Roberto Mancini.

Pellegrini, who stepped down from his position as Malaga coach at the end of last season, joins the Premier League club on a three-year contract and will take up the role on June 24.

Pellegrini said in a statement: "I am delighted to accept this hugely exciting opportunity. The club has a clear vision for success both on and off the pitch and I am committed to making a significant contribution. 

"Everything is in place for Manchester City to continue to be successful and I am excited to be able to work with such a talented squad, the Executive team and the Board to deliver for fans who are renowned for their steadfast support."

Pellegrini has more than 25 years of managerial experience in a career that has seen him take charge of Chilean clubs Universidad Chile, Palestino, O'Higgins and Universidad Catoilica, San Lorenzo and River Plate of Argentina, as well as Villarreal, Real Madrid and Malaga in Spain.
