Have Manchester City, Pep Guardiola on the bench and care about nothing. This is how the leaders of the "Citizens" should work lately. Be calm and smiling, not taking a single euro out of their pocket.
How else, when the "housekeeper" Pep Guardiola is at the helm of the team. The Catalan coach is well aware that teams are built in the summer and not in the winter. There is a lot going on at the moment, something the 47-year-old hates.
In the established statements before the match action in the Premier League, the Catalan decided. Manchester City do not need additions during the winter transfer window. So everything that is written from time to time and weaves the "Citizens" is nothing but rumors.
"To transfer is to invest in a player for five or six years. This is not the case in this transfer market. Loans are being made, but the big clubs are not making big transfer moves now. If you don't have any injuries, you are satisfied with your players, your team, you continue as it is, "said Guardiola, thus rejecting any transfer scenario that complicates his team.
After all, how to buy, when everyone already has it! Manchester City are complete in all positions while the injuries are minimal this season. In other words, everything is fine!
The Barcelona coach does not give in so easily to his players.
Felipe Coutinho has lost his place in the starting lineup of "Blaugrana"!
Coutinho may have been considered one of Valverde's key players at the start of the season. However, the Basque coach expects much more from the Brazilian.
In the last matches he has not taken enough time to participate, something that has displeased the footballer.
In the match against Levante, he was one of the distinguished ones, scoring the only goal of the Catalans in the 2-1 defeat.
However, the Barcelona coach stressed that the Brazilian must fight to be in the first options again!
"When Dembele was not playing, you asked me about him. Now Coutinho stays out and the Frenchman fights. This is football, he has to fight to change the data in his favor. I'm sure he can give a lot more, "he said.
