Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is not settling for just one trophy this season after guiding the club to the Capital One Cup trophy yesterday.
Yaya Toure, Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas scored the goals at Wembley after City were shocked early on by Fabio Borini’s impressive opener.
City go to Barcelona with a two goal deficit in their Champions League knock out clash, but remain favourites to complete a domestic treble with the Premier League and FA Cup.
Pellegrini knows that yesterday was a vital result, but more is still to come from his team.
“For such an important club, to fail for the second time is not good. Today it was very important for us to win after what happened last year,” Pellegrini told the clubs official site.
“We had maybe not our best day in creating space but all of the team worked together without the ball – Sunderland didn’t have many chances to score – they scored with their first chance.
“It’s hard to play one goal down, you play against the time, against the opponents. Today they played the way they must play.
“We will evaluate the season in May – we won today one trophy, I don’t think that anybody can be allowed to think that’s enough at a club like this – we want to beat Wigan on Saturday, then we will be in the semi-final again at Wembley in the FA Cup.”
