City Boss Manuel Pellegrini: He Loves Pressure of Managing 'Manchester United'

On the scale of Freudian slips, confusing Manchester City for Manchester United—when you're the Manchester City boss—is a fairly major one.

Manuel Pellegrini seemed to tell a BBC journalist who asked him about the pressure of the job (at 1:10 in the video above) that he loved "the pressure to manage such a big team as Manchester United."

On the plus side, however, it's the sort of slip that is somewhat more palatable when you've just led City to your first trophy as manager.

Reporter Mark Clemmit didn't pick him up on the apparent slip, but as you can imagine, it has not gone unnoticed.
