I Think We Need Someone Else - Pep Guardiola

I Think We Need Someone Else - Pep Guardiola
4/8/2017


Manchester City had a superb game against West Ham United on Friday with Kun Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus netting three un-replied Goals but the Manchester City Boss Pep Guardiola still thinks his squad is not complete.

The Manchester outfit has spent about €200 million in the transfer market already bringing in Danilo, Kyle Walker, Ederson Moraes and Bernardo Silva but watching his team play during the preseason Pep Guardiola feels that there is still someone missing in his squad. 

"I think we need someone else, something else, a little bit more," he told a news conference.

"I never complain in my career as a manager and I was so satisfied with the guys last season.
"The transfer window finishes on August 31, we have time to see what is going on with the people coming and going. We will see."

City have had victories against Real Madrid and Tottenham during the preseason, but Pep Guardiola feels his team needs more hard work if they are to get an impressive start to the season. 

"In the last three games we have scored 10 goals against top teams and conceded just one," he added.

"The stability of the team has been good. We didn't concede too much, we always created more than the opponents and that's why we are quite satisfied but the reality starts now.

"We have to do that under pressure. We did it without pressure in friendlies and now we have to see how we react under pressure.

On team selection, Guardiola added: "They have to convince me this week. I have confidence in them so it's not about that but i have one week to think about it. I have to see Brighton their qualities and their stadium and I'm going to decide."

Gundogan is still side lined due to a cruciate knee ligament injury but the Catalan feels he could feature for the club few days after the Premier League Season starts.

"I think he's close to coming back," the Catalan added. "Maybe he'll get minutes in Girona. I don't know, we're going to ask the doctor because of course he was injured for a long time.

"We don't want to take any risks. He has to be strong but of course his quality is perfect for the way we want to play."
