Man City boss Pellegrini: ‘I don’t care about player nationality'; no guarantees for Joe Hart [Video]

Man City boss Pellegrini: I dont care about player nationality; no guarantees for Joe Hart [Video]

UKIP won’t have liked the sight of Man City’s Manuel Pellegrini didn’t name a single Briton or Englishman in his starting XI to face Arsenal in the Community Shield.

Ironically, Arsenal were the first team to do this, back in 2005, and since then, it’s not exactly a rare event, so City boss Pellegrini was keen to play down the importance of it.

‘It doesn’t matter for me if the player is from Europe, America, Asia – I pick the team I believe is best to win a particular game; I don’t look at nationality.

Asked about Joe Hart’s number 1 credentials, Pellegrini gave no guarantees for the England keeper, saying ‘every player has to prove he’s the number 1 in his position’.
