Pellegrini takes a shot at Real Madrid

Manuel Pellegrini, who was fired as coach two months ago by Real Madrid, has taken a shot at his former club's player recruitment, comparing it to an orchestra that hired the the best guitarrists and then asked them to play piano.
Pellegrini made his comments Saturday in the Chilean newspaper El Mercurio.
Real Madrid spent huge sums prior to last season, signing Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema and several other players and tallied a record number of points but still finished second to Barcelona in the Spanish league.
The Chile native said he hoped to coach another European club and would like to coach Chile's national team one day.
