As if Pellegrini is wearing a hoody. Almost makes Tim's gilet look acceptable.

Pellegrini looks like like a drugged up drunk homeless man wearing a nylon Matalan hoodie who spends his time shouting at pigeons.

Get in Wigan! Serves Pellegrini right for wearing that absolutely disgusting hoody.

I think seeing Pellegrini in a hoody is one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen at a football match. Completely weird.

Pellegrini's hoody looks like it should have a list of school leavers' names on the back like the ones posh kids in Oxford wear

City didn't even give Wigan any respect. Pellegrini would never wear a hoodie when facing Wenger or Mourinho.
— Brad Gibsön (@TheGibson10) March 9, 2014
City deserved to lose as soon as Pellegrini decided he was going to wear a hoody for the game this morning.

The only time I'd ever back the 'Moyes Out' campaign is if he wore a MUFC hoodie. Jesus.??
— Gaz (@CantonaManc) March 9, 2014
Pellegrini in that hoody was a disgusting image. No one over 70 should be in a hoody. Take the cup seriously and wear a suit damn it.
