Guardiola defends Man City's big spending

Guardiola defends Man City's big spending

Defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo have all arrived at the Etihad Stadium along with goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva to take City's expenditure to £217mn ($281mn, 238mn euros).

"We played good games against four unbelievable teams".

"Six players were out of contract".

From goalkeeper to forwards Manchester City have the best squad in England, as some of their backups could start for a top six side in England. "We didn't have full-backs and you have to buy full-backs", the Spaniard added.

"It started with Real Madrid and Ronaldo going for £80 million and then Bale for £85 million and everything went more expensive".

Huddersfield Town - Aaron Mooy has been one of its big signings and he was terrific last season, but it's going to be a tough one in the Premier League for it. Make no mistake, for teams like Huddersfield success is staying up. We were not able with those players to find a solution. We played 3-4-3 with a diamond, it's such a demanding system, so attacking, but so demanding defensively, and we did it quite well, yet for me it doesn't matter as it's pre-season.

"It's going to be a challenge for everybody but we'll take it in our stride, compete and we'll surprise a few people", March told The Times newspaper.

"In the last three games we have scored ten goals against top teams and conceded just one".

Despite making such significant investments, Guardiola claimed City have actually saved money by getting the majority of their transfer business done earlier in the close season.

"We spent", the coach said.

Liberty Media Corporation - Ser (NASDAQ:FWONK) Experiences Heavy Trading Volume
Norges Bank acquired a new stake in Liberty Interactive Corporation during the fourth quarter valued at about $32,857,000. Other hedge funds and other institutional investors also recently made changes to their positions in the company.

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed". I think soon [they will be back] but not for this game. Harry Kane is the best finisher with the types of goals he scores so I'd go for him if I had to bet on the nose but I do fancy Lacazette each-way at 10/1. "We're raring to go".

The midfield looks fairly well stacked as Yaya Touré, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sané, Raheem Sterling and, when fit again, Ilkay Gundogan will provide plenty of ammunition for the strikers to feed off. "It's the same pressure as I had last season", Guardiola explained. Big things are expected of the Brazilian and it will be interesting if he folds or thrives in the pressure. I'm honest in my job.

Chelsea looked a settled side last season, but Conte knows that there is a bull's-eye on his back and he has repeatedly requested the Chelsea board to help him shore up his team; pleas which have fallen on deaf ears.

Four of those new players cost more than £40m but that pales into insignificance compared to the €222m (£197m) Paris Saint-Germain paid Barcelona for Neymar. "Last season in my first news conference we were the favourites so nothing has changed". We have to deal with that and handle that. We did it without pressure in friendlies and now we have to see how we react under pressure'.
