Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has admitted that his side will come out with plans which are different from some people’s expectations.
The Spaniard has revealed that he will prove wrong those who believe City won the Premier League title because they spent a lot of money.
Guardiola, who won at least a league title in each club he managed, has revealed that the Citizens will not splash money out for transfers.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has spent more than £450m since arriving at the Etihad Stadium in 2016.
Guardiola signed the likes of Ederson, Claudio Bravo, Benjamin Mendy, Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker, Leroy Sane, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Bernardo Silva, Aymeric Laporte, Danilo and Ilkay Gundogan.
Pep Guardiola won the Premier League manager of the season! In my opinion no surprises there as he led his team to a record breaking league title win. This was the first time a premier league team got 100 points in a season. #pepguardiola #guardiola #mancity #manchestercity #champions🏆 #kevindebruyne #kdb #manageroftheyear #manageroftheseason #sane #leroysane #fcbarcelona #bayernmunich #leomessi #messi #like4like #follow4follow #dybala #neymarjr #neymar #premierleague #ronaldo #cristianoronaldo
“When people say, ‘they won because they invested a lot,’ they are right. We invested a lot of money, we are going to invest less in the future because instead of doing it in two or three transfer markets, we did it in one. But we needed to because of the (squad’s average) age we had before,” he told Sky Sports.
“Yaya is leaving so we have to replace him and maybe another one. One or two, no more, maybe people don’t believe me but we don’t have the money to invest £300m every season.”
“(The other) maybe in front but I don’t know exactly. I have to think more, speak to (director of football) Txiki (Begiristain) and the staff about it more because there are four competitions and it’s tougher. We need new faces to compete with the guys from this season.”
After two seasons, Guardiola has managed 55 wins, 13 draws and 8 defeats at Man City.
