Manuel Pellegrini says that Manchester City's owners should sack him if they're not happy with his style of play.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has called on the club's owners to get a new manager if they are unhappy with his style of play.

The Blues were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage, while their Premier League push has faltered in recent weeks after dropping points.

He told The People: "The way I want to win the title would be to be the best team of the year, to play attractive football for the fans, to be a team with character and personality.

"If that is not what is wanted, then maybe another manager comes here who wants to play kicking the ball high, trying to score just one goal and the game is over, and every week complaining about the referee.

"You can have a little advantage with some unfair play but I don't think it's the way to do it."

City face a tricky trip to Crystal Palace on Sunday, as they look to maintain their title challenge.
