Pep: Man City Star Didn't Deserve To Start

Manchester City have enjoyed a fine start to the season, but Pep Guardiola has revealed one his stars did not deserve to start in the opening few games.

Leroy Sane completed his first 90 minutes of the season in the Citizens 5-0 win over Crystal Palace in a game where he also scored.

However, Guardiola reveals he was not happy with the German midfielder when he arrived back in pre-season.

“He didn’t arrive good. He didn’t make a good pre-season, he was not good in those games and he didn’t deserve to play,” Guradiola told a press conference, according to Squawka.

“Now I have five strikers, all of them deserve to play. Gabriel is an amazing player. Bernardo Silva, Rash [Sterling], Leroy [Sané], Sergio [Aguero].

“All of them are going to play, some of them are going to rest. I need them sharp.

“Leroy the last five, six months, especially the second part of last season, was so important for us,” he added.

“He’s a guy who runs in behind in the right tempo in the right moments like anyone else in the world. He’s a guy who’s improving the simple things.

“He’s scoring a lot of goals, creates chances, gives assists, he’s a young player and he’s so important for us.”

I really like the Man City's project, trying to make the team one of the best in the world and the fact that they brought Pep Guadiola. I am impressed. Citizen all the way.I want them to score 130 goals this season.
