Manuel Pellegrini, who has carried Villarreal to such great heights over the last four years, has been rumored to be on Barcelona's watch list, and apparently has told reporters he wants to coach in England's Premiere League. I will be heartbroken when he leaves, whenever that is. All I can hope is he gives Villarreal one more year for Champions League play. No matter what players have come and gone, Pellegrini has been the heart and soul of this team. Please don't go!
Also, on a quick note, Sol Campbell has been linked to Villarreal, but is denying interest, saying he is content at Portsmouth.
And, completely unrelated, Riquelme has been catching hell from Ricardo La Volpe.
