But Pellegrini will not care what Wilmots thinks as he focuses on landing the biggest prize in club football before he leaves the Etihad this summer.
Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists he won’t let City off the hook a second time.
Ibrahimovic blew a string of chances, including a penalty in the first leg.
But he said: “As long as I keep going to the right place at the right time I don’t worry, and I was at the right place at the right time and got the chance.
“We will not repeat the mistakes. We will play better in the next game.”
