BBC Sport - Champions League: Man City were 'best' team in Rome - Pellegrini

Best team won in Rome - Pellegrini

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says the "best" team won after his side defeat Roma 2-0 to progress into the last 16 of the Champions League.

A victory in Roma, combined with Bayern Munich's 3-0 win over CSKA Moscow, secured City's place in Monday's draw despite the absence of key players.

With the next round not starting until February, Pellegrini says his players must now focus on the Premier League, which he thinks is seen as more important than the Champions League in England.
