Pellegrini focusing on Villareal

Asked about the rumours linking him with a summer move to Barcelona (read more here), Villareal manager Manuel Pellegrini (54) said at a press conference that he wants to stay focused on Villareal: "One cannot control the news that comes out. This is something to which I don't want to attach great importance, because it's really no big deal. Of course one should feel proud when one's name is linked with a great club, but this should not be a reason to get distracted."

Catalan sports paper Sport says that Barcelona is one of the few clubs that Pellegrini would like to coach one day. A few weeks ago, the Chilean manager would have rejected a big offer from an important club because the latter was not on the list of his favourite clubs. The contract of Pellegrini expires in 2010. The manager has a buyout clause of 2 million euro°.
