1 (SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER, MANUEL PELLEGRINI, SAYING:

“Maybe the new challenge is City also. You are talking new challenges, there are a lot of different places where you can have it, but City also is a challenge. I am sure that Yaya is very happy here.”

“Well because we have a project here and every year we are trying to improve. Maybe you cannot win the title every year, but I think that the project of the club is to improve, to improve the squad, to improve as a club. So that’s a lot of important things, I think that’s an important challenge also.”

“I don’t think that Aston Villa will not be concentrated. One thing is to arrive to the final of the FA Cup, the other thing is to be relegated from the Premier League. I don’t think that they are in a very good position in the table so I am sure that we are going to have a very tough game.”

STORY: The new challenges Yaya Toure craves can be found at Manchester City and the midfielder does not need to leave the Premier League club if he wants to fight for silverware, manager Manuel Pellegrini said on Friday (April 24).

Toure suggested this week that he might be interested in a new challenge and the Ivorian’s agent has said the 31-year-old would not be short of suitors if he decided to end his five-year spell in Manchester.

But Pellegrini believes the powerful Ivorian wants to stay and has urged the midfielder to play a crucial role in helping City compete for honours again after a season without a trophy.

“Maybe the new challenge is City also. You are talking new challenges, there are a lot of different places where you can have it, but City also is a challenge. I am sure that Yaya is very happy here,” Pellegrini told a news conference in Manchester.

“We have a project here and every year we are trying to improve. Maybe you cannot win the title every year, but I think that the project of the club is to improve, to improve the squad, to improve as a club. So that’s a lot of important things, I think that’s an important challenge also,” he added.

Fourth-placed City host FA Cup finalists Aston Villa on Saturday (April 25) hoping to leapfrog neighbours Manchester United, who are a point ahead and play Everton on Sunday (April 26).

Tim Sherwood’s Villa are 15th in the table and not yet safe from relegation.

“I don’t think that Aston Villa will not be concentrated. One thing is to arrive to the final of the FA Cup, the other thing is to be relegated from the Premier League. I don’t think that they are in a very good position in the table so I am sure that we are going to have a very tough game,” Pellegrini said.

Captain Vincent Kompany will miss the Villa game along with Gael Clichy, Samir Nasri and Stevan Jovetic, but midfielders James Milner and David Silva will be fit along with striker Wilfried Bony.
