Pep Guardiola On Brahim Diaz Transfer

Pep Guardiola On Brahim Diaz Transfer

Guardiola rejected claims he had ordered the grass to be grown longer at the Etihad Stadium ahead of last week's 2-1 win over Liverpool, which reignited the Premier League title race.

"I don't want people who don't want to stay here, to be with us and try to achieve what we want to achieve".

"We want to cut the field all the 10 years [of his career]".

"But you have to take a look at all the big clubs in Europe, how many young players that are in the first team immediately". So you have to do the best for the opponent for the game, you have to respect our game and our rules. "I never give Danilo four or five games in a row, and he is an incredible full back but sometimes I'm firm". "I never made a phone call to say 'do this to damager our opponents".

The 19-year-old was highly rated by the club but has followed winger Jadon Sancho out of the Etihad after the England global left in the summer of 2017, going on to make a huge impact at Borussia Dortmund.

"I have many other issues to think about that". Kompany has said he wants to remain at the club and Guardiola would like him to stay.

Leroy Sane's second-half victor last Thursday ended Liverpool's unbeaten start to the season and saw defending champions City move four points behind Jurgen Klopp's league leaders.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes Brahim Diaz's departure for Real Madrid is a sign of good work being done by the club's academy despite the loss of another bright prospect.

The 19-year-old Diaz completed a move to the Spanish capital on Monday, following in the footsteps of English winger Jadon Sancho, who left City in 2017 for Borussia Dortmund to make a huge impact in the German Bundesliga. "We wish him all the best because he's a nice guy".

"Of course Liverpool are out of the Carabao Cup, so they have more time to prepare for the Premier League, but it is what it is".

"Sometimes it is necessary to fight and win in that way - [you] live the game like it is the last game in your life and against Liverpool we were there".
