Manchester City fan Noel Gallagher says it’s time for Manuel Pellegrini to move on after the end of his three-year honeymoon period.
The Oasis mastermind was at Wembley at the end of February to watch the Chilean’s side lift the Capital One Cup and he even predicted a Yaya Toure penalty would win it.
But he admits it’s time for the more senior coach to move on and make way for young gun Pep to come in and shake things up.
Speaking on tour in South America, the High Flying Birds star said: “We have to see what happens (with Guardiola). Manuel has done a brilliant job. They both have similar styles as coaches.
“Pellegrini signs good players but he is a bit older than Pep. If Pep won three trophies in three years, then yes, I would prefer him before Pellegrini.
“Pellegrini is a good man, I have met him in person. He is a good manager too, but his moment has passed.
“In modern football, coaches stay at the same club for three seasons, and this is his third season in the club. So it’s time for him to go.”
