Pep Guardiola finally feeling appreciated at Manchester City after rocky first season

21 Апреля 2017, 02:15 | Joan Schultz

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola misses the pressure related to training in the Bundesliga and LaLiga, though he adores English assistants. "I want him fit enough to play every week - he has suffered for long periods but he is a real, real central defender".

Manchester City have 64 points after 32 matches, only two fewer than their final points total from last season. "Hopefully he can be fit until the end of the season because he's an important player for us".

"When this happens I feel I'm giving something back to the fans".

When asked how his team compares to the last eight in the Champions League, which includes Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Barcelona, he said: "We are far away".

With 20 minutes to go Yoshida had the golden chance to make up for allowing Kompany to rise above him and score when he found space at the far post, only to head straight down into the hands of under-fire City stopper, Bravo.

The 31-year-old's 55th-minute header in a 3-0 victory at Southampton, in front of adoring City fans, sparked an emotional celebration from Kompany.

It is a topsy turvy start to life for Guardiola in England, his attacking soccer combined with defensive want as City fight to ensure Champions League qualification.

"Congratulations to the team, especially the way we played".

"We have to believe in ourselves and tactically we have to play for each other defensively and offensively".

That's right, the fleet-footed youngster, who has played as an attacker for his entire career, could be used in an orthodox role for Die Mannschaft but, speaking to Manchester Evening News, Sane is not exactly keen on the idea.

This was a potentially tricky assignment ahead of a crunch week for City, with an FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal next weekend followed by a midweek Manchester derby.

The win lifted City above Liverpool, who play West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, into third.

City are still awaiting their first triumph in Europe's elite club competition and were eliminated by Monaco at the Round of 16 stage in this season's edition. We didn't show today a good Southampton with good quality on the pitch.
