Mourinho loves taking credit for everything: Pellegrini

London, June 24 (IANS) Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini on Wednesday took a swipe at rival boss Jose Mourinho, saying the Chelsea coach takes credit for everything.

The Portuguese guided the ‘Blues’ to Premier League glory last season, finishing eight points ahead of defending champions City in second place. But Pellegrini believes the manner in which the two coaches celebrated their respective title wins highlights key differences in their characters with the Chilean intimating that Mourinho took the limelight away from his players.

“When he wins, Mourinho wants to take credit for everything. I never do that. When I won the Premier League, I didn’t say a word,” Pellegrini was quoted as saying by Chilean newspaper El Mercurio.

The two managers have endured a fractious relationship ever since Mourinho replaced Pellegrini at Real Madrid, though the City boss insists he does not hold a grudge against his Chelsea counterpart.

“I don’t have any problem with Mourinho. He’s not my enemy and there isn’t any conflict – but I differ from him on all fronts. I have no interest in analysing him as a person,” Pellegrini concluded.
