Manuel Pellegrini has the rest of the season to save his job at Manchester City according to reports.
Speculations are rife that he may be booted out of the Etihad Stadium if City go without a trophy this term.
Two losses in a row at the hands of Barcelona and Liverpool have compounded a subpar run of results for the reigning Premier League champions who are now five points behind league leaders Chelsea who have a game in hand.
City failed in the Capital One Cup and the FA Cup and now face a monumental test against Barcelona in a few weeks’ time in order to keep their European hopes alive.
If they lose to the Catalan giants then Pellegrini will need to mastermind a domestic triumph if he hopes to remain in the role at Eastlands next season.
