In what will be his last season in charge of Manchester City, Manuel Pellegrini has exceeded expectations this week when his team beat PSG 3-2 on aggregate over two legs to move into the semi-final of the Champions League this season.

The second leg was devoid of much action but Belgian playmaker Kevin de Bruyne proved to be the difference on the night as the Etihad outfit managed to knock one of the favorites out of the competition.

And the manager is now hoping to move out of the Premier League with a Champions League victory that might not be too far out of reach.

With Barcelona also knocked out, City will be hoping that they can ride their luck this season and star striker Sergio Aguero urged his team mates to give their all in their pursuit of the Champions League.

The Argentine international missed a penalty early in the second leg which did not prove costly in the end and in an interview after the victory said that it was important for his team to go all the way atleast for their manager.

He said that a chance to play in the semi-final was amazing and that he is proud of his teammates who have helped the team reach that level.

“We know that he won’t be there for the next season, so to be in the semis is something really amazing, it gives us great pride to take City to this level,” he said.

He went on to explain that standing as one of the 4 best clubs in Europe at this time of the season was one of the goals for the club at the start of the season and that standing there was important from Pellegrini’s point of view who will be replaced by Guardiola come the end of the season.

“This was our goal, to be among the four best teams in the Champions League and now we want to keep growing.

“It is important for him and for all of us, obviously it is important for him because he knows he won’t be here for next season,” he added.

He also said that he hopes only the best for Pellegrini after the season and that though he will be happy with the team’s performance so far this season, it is important for them finish off the season on a strong note.

“I imagine he must be very happy, very pleased. But I hope we can go even further,” Aguero signed off.
