Pellegrini hopes for strong finish

Manuel Pellegrini wants his Malaga side to beat Deportivo tomorrow and secure qualification for Europe next season.

The Boquerones host the Turcos on Sunday looking for the three points that will guarantee them a place in the Europa League.

And the Chilean Coach has admitted that he wants to leave the club at the end of the season in the highest position possible.

“I hope we can clinch a victory tomorrow against Deportivo and seal our European qualification next season, following the amazing year we’ve had,” he told a Press conference.

“The Champions League was of the same importance to us this year as the League, and we all worked as hard as possible taking part in both competitions.

“Now our focus is to qualify for the Europa League, and the whole team will be there as every one of them deserves it.

“It’s always better to finish in sixth, rather than seventh position, and to win in front of our fans is particularly special.

“Even if we lose tomorrow, we could still qualify.

“It’ll be a huge celebration for us if we win.

“To qualify for European football for the second year running will be absolutely amazing for us all.”
