Champions League: Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini on Barcelona tie

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says all the teams in the Champions League round of 16 are equally strong, after his side were drawn against Barcelona.

The City boss believes Barcelona will be expecting a tough tie too, when they meet next year.

Pellegrini adds that the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas by Tottenham is a "surprise", but the Portuguese will be given the opportunity to continue his "brilliant career".
