Mangala Deserved To Be Sent Off – Pellegrini

By  |  0 Comments

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says he is not complaining that Eliaquim Mangala was sent off during the match against Southampton.

Pellegrini accepted that Mangala deserved to be sent off.

Mangala was given a yellow card in the first half when he brought down Dusan Tadic and sent off when Yaya Toure’s mistake forced him to bring down Shane Long.

Pellegrini: “It was the correct decision. They were fouls. But with 10 men we tried to score another goal.

“Mangala played very well. It was an unnecessary foul. It was not Mangala who lost the ball. He and Kompany played very well.”
