Pellegrini: Madrid events far reaching

Manuel Pellegrini says events at Real Madrid "can shake the whole country of Spain" while declining to offer advice to Jose Mourinho on dealing with the current tempestuous and uncertain situation at the club.

Malaga boss Pellegrini was Mourinho's predecessor at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, lasting just one season before being moved on to allow for the Special One's arrival in the summer of 2010.

Asked for an opinion on his successor's current thoughts ahead of his Malaga's side trip to the Bernabeu on Wednesday night, the Chilean coach was at his most diplomatic.

• Rigg: Pellegrini reminds Mourinho of longevity 'success' at Madrid

"I cannot analyse things from his point of view," Pellegrini said. "When I was there I said it was a very difficult job. [Real Madrid] is an institution which shakes the whole country, with a great social, political and environmental pressure. It is a difficult position and each person must deal with it the way they can."

Pellegrini, speaking hours after Mourinho had stressed that his preference for Diego Lopez over Iker Casillas in the Madrid goal was due solely to footballing reasons, was also wary of intervening in that debate.

"Anything I say is going to cause problems or a row and I do not want that," he said. "I have a good relationship with Iker and we all already know his career. The coach who is there would have to judge his own relationship with him."

Madrid's ongoing internal strife also saw Mourinho reprimand Pepe and drop him from the squad for Wednesday's game, apparently in punishment for the centre-half's accusation that the coach had disrespected Casillas.

"Whenever there are internal problems of all kinds the team who suffers them is affected," Pellegrini said. "Madrid will have their own problems which affect them, and us too. We are going to try and win with our own virtues, not the problems which Madrid have."

The Engineer's impressive stewardship of Malaga this season, amid the turmoil caused by owner Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani's uncertain intentions and erratic tweets, has led to strong speculation he could take over at Premier League clubs Manchester City or Chelsea next season. A decision on his own future was 'parked' for now, he claimed.

"At this moment I have parked my future," Pellegrini said. "I am thinking about finishing my campaign with Malaga. It is not an easy matter, we have talked among ourselves and we want to get the points. Afterwards there will be things to analyse at the appropriate moment."

Malaga's 1-0 defeat at Granada last week means a return to the Champions league is unlikely, but Pellegrini said he and the players were still focused on finishing the season in the Europa League places and then seeing what the future might bring.

"When we lose people always say our heads must have been elsewhere," he said. "I do not believe that, we are very focused on the sporting side. We are playing for an important place in the table. When the year ends it is sure that we will not yet know Malaga's future. The two things are not related."
