Manchester City manager happy with his team
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated that he is happy with his current team.
He said that he already had a good squad last season and that it was important to strengthen certain weaknesses. Indeed Manchester City was poor at the back last season and this time around they have signed three defenders as well as a new goalkeeper.
Pep Guardiola believes that his team was quite good in attack and that it was important to strengthen the team at the back. He said that this would give more freedom to the offensive players as they will not have to worry about conceding goals at the back.
He said that his team is ready for the new season and that they are looking forward to making a good start to the season. He believes that the players are ready and that there is a good team spirit within the team.
Pep Guardiola said that the objective of the team is to win the Premier League and that they will do everything they can to achieve that. He said that it is also important that Manchester City go further in the Champions League and with the squad that they have they should be aiming for the trophy itself.
However, he admitted that things would not be easy in the Premier League where at least 6 teams can challenge for the title. He said that rivals such as Manchester United and Chelsea have invested massively in new players and that it will be hard to win the title.
But he is confident that his squad is good enough to make a serious challenge for the title. He said that he is still in the transfer market and that he will make signings if ever the right opportunity arises.
