‘Manchester City Are Already Playing Like Barcelona’- Manager Pep Guardiola Says
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has claimed that his team are starting to show the level of quality he saw at previous clubs Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Guardiola won six league titles in seven years coaching in Spain and then Germany, but could only finish third in his first season at the Etihad Stadium.
City are currently second in the Premier League, behind Manchester United only on goal difference. After scoring nine goals in two games against Liverpool and Feyenoord, the Spaniard is excited how his team are starting to play.
“What we did against Feyenoord is what I like and tried to do at Barcelona and Bayern Munich,” he told a news conference ahead of Saturday’s trip to fourth-placed Watford.
“But sometimes I wasn’t able to do it, even at Barcelona and in Munich, is to keep the ball high and press — to control the counter-attacks. That is always the target and why I came here.
“But that is a process and with City, I feel now, they have good players that can become a big team.”
