Guardiola: I'm so happy with this Man City squad

Guardiola: I'm so happy with this Man City squad

While most top clubs largely struggled in pre-season, Manchester City looked pretty good, defeating the likes of Real Madrid (4-1), Tottenham (3-0) and West Ham (3-0) after the opening loss to Manchester United (0-2), and they definitely seem well prepared for the new season. We always create more than the opponent.

"The last six or seven years Manchester City didn't buy full backs".

Guardiola will travel to Brighton with new signings Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker and Danilo, although Benjamin Mendy is still working his way back to fitness after a thigh injury.

"We decided last season we could change the team to make the team younger for the next four or five years".

"We bought three and the market is so demanding right now, for all the teams around the world, not just for Manchester City".

Guardiola actually enquired about Busquets last summer but a move never materialised, and it will surely be a hard task again this summer after Barca lost Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain in a world record transfer. This group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City.

"We did it earlier, so we were lucky because now it would be so much more expensive with what has happened in the last weeks".

Foden is still expected to play for City's U23s at times this season, but can expect to gain a wealth of experience by being around the squad in training and on match days, as well as featuring in cup games and off the bench in occasional league matches.

"I think it is unsustainable".

"That is why the club was clever to do that because we anticipated what we needed and we tried to do our best, not just for next season but the future".

Guardiola is credited with moulding the now 29-year-old into the ideal defensive midfield lynchpins, who has allowed attacking stars such as Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi, Pedro, David Villa, Alexis Sanchez, Neymar and Dani Alves to flourish over the years.

Muric, 18, is also slated to join the travelling party down to the south coast as third-choice goalkeeper, replacing Angus Gunn, who provided cover last season but is now on loan at Norwich. "But we try to win the game". "We did it without pressure in friendlies and now we have to see how we react under pressure".
