Manchester City Not Yet At Barcelona’s Level – Pep Guardiola

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stressed that his side are far off from touching the heights of Barcelona. The Catalan tactician is just games away from guiding the Citizens to their third Premier League title in six seasons, but insists they cannot be compared with Barcelona, until they attain the same amount of success as the Blaugrana.

Mauricio Pochettino would not swap Tottenham Hotspur for any elite club

Mauricio Pochettino has stressed that he would not swap Tottenham Hotspur for any other side including Real Madrid. The north London giants put in a stellar of a showing on Wednesday night as they thrashed the European champions by a 3-1 score in the Champions League. The victory was their very first against the Spanish giants with Dele Alli bagging a goal in either half for Pochettino's men.

Since then, Pochettino has been linked with a potential move to the Bernabeu, with the position of Zinedine Zidane under question following Los Blancos' slow start to the season. However, in response, Pochettino has clarified that his future lies with Spurs, with whom he plans to win silverware in the new stadium.

Ronaldinho: Guardiola can replicate Barcelona success at Manchester City

Brazilian legend Ronaldinho feels Pep Guardiola is the right manager to take Manchester City to the next level. The Catalan tactician joined the Citizens during the previous campaign and endured the first trophyless season of his professional career.

However, the Mancunian giants have made significant progress during the current campaign with Guardiola significantly bolstering his backline in the summer. The likes of Ederson and Kyle Walker have been regulars in the starting line-up, and their presence has added more calm to a previously leaky defence.

Fabian Delph Dedicates Manchester City Victory to Benjamin Mendy

Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph has dedicated the club’s victory over Chelsea to left back Benjamin Mendy, who has recently been ruled out for up to 9 months with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.


Mendy came to the club from Monaco for just over £ 50 million, and he has become one of the world’s most expensive defenders. He has been a crucial factor behind City making an excellent start to the season, which only improved after a 1-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. This was a mightily impressive result, as City dominated from start to finish.

Pep Guardiola Defends the Lavish Spending by Manchester City

Pep Guardiola has defended the lavish spending by Manchester City in the summer.


City have been the most active in the summer transfer window after bringing in several talent worth £ 222 million. Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, and Danilo are some of the players who have joined City in the summer. Only a few years ago, the club were found guilty of failing to comply with the financial fair play regulations. Yet, Guardiola has been backed quite impressively in the market by the club owners after having spent a reasonable sum of money even last summer.

Pep Guardiola Admits City May Fail to Qualify for the Champions League

Manchester City are at the risk of failing to qualify for the Champions League, according to manager Pep Guardiola.


The incredible admission from the manager comes as his team struggles to put together a run of form that would see them challenge for the title. Manchester City have suffered some disappointing results like the 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Everton and the 2-2 draw with Tottenham in which they lost a two-goal lead. As a result, they are outside the contention for the title. While being unable to win the title in his debut campaign will not be seen as a major catastrophe, failure to qualify for the Champions League next season will head to the club quite hard.
