Under Pellegrini, Real Madrid got 96 points and scored 102 goals

Manuel Pellegrini spent just less than a year on the Real Madrid bench, although the Chilean feels the team which was assembled by the club was unbalanced despite the number of goals they scored. In 2009, Real Madrid were eliminated by Alcorcon in the Copa Del Rey Round of 16, while also being destroyed by Lyon in the same Champions League stage that season. Pellegrini and his team scored 96 points in LaLiga but were still beaten by Barcelona to the title. “Unfortunately, there was an unbalanced team at Real Madrid,” Pellegrini told reporters. “We got 96 points and scored 102 goals, all with Cristiano injured for three months.”

 

“Take that time without Cristiano away from the coaches who came later. I would love to stay there for three or four years and win to a title. But God makes up for things, and if I stayed at Real Madrid, I would not go to Malaga. The decision which I accepted was correct. “After his time at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Pellegrini moved to Malaga and went with the club to the Champions League before moving to Manchester City where he won the Premier League in 2013/14.
