Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis has described manager Manuel Pellegrini as someone who is calmer than his players.
The Citizens beat Southampton 3-0 on Sunday, moving into second place in the Barclays Premier League table, closing the gap betwen them and Chelsea to six points.
'He is a manager who is always more calm than the players," Demichelis said, as mcfc.co.uk reported from the telegraph.
'Maybe we are too enthusiastic or excited and think less than he does, but he always finds the right answer and the right path for us.
'That is why I think he is a great group leader and manager. I have known him for a long time and we have been through difficult periods together, at River Plate and Malaga, and I am really sure he will find a way this time as well.
'It works both ways. He has faith in me, but I also have faith in him. Our manager, just like every manager, has to fix things if they are not going well and stick to things he thinks we are doing well.
'We are conceding too many goals in the Premier League and we have to stop doing that. But make no mistake, when he has to get angry, he does that very well. He is not always so calm.'
