Show me the money, guys - Guardiola sets City's Champions League expectations

  • David Silva Comments On Manchester City Future

After a quiet start to his City career while he adapted to life in a new club, new league and new country after his move from Monaco in the summer of 2017, Bernardo blossomed in the second half of last season.

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola applauded Bernardo Silva's intelligence after starring in a less familiar central role against Fulham on Saturday, proving himself to have the "wow" factor.

Silva also admitted that he would like to play for his local team Las Palmas before calling time on his career, but insisted that he would want to stay in Manchester for the remainder of his contract before making a decision. "Last season he played three minutes from the bench and when he plays three minutes from the bench, he plays the best he can play". They didn't have a scoreboard when I first came - a man used to come around with a blackboard with the score on it!

The Manchester City boss, only four months removed from lifting the Premier League title, is still looking for a lot more from his players.

The Citizens' next fixture is at home to Lyon this Wednesday in the Champions League.

A superb piece of midfield skill from Bernardo Silva played Sterling clean through on goal only for the England global to strike the crossbar.

Sane, 23, left the Germany camp for the birth of his daughter, Rio Stella, last week and on Saturday made his first Premier League start of the season, taking just 97 seconds to open the scoring.

"I hope he likes sports, and if he gets into football, we'll help him". "So I think I am not concerned for one second [with he idea that] we deserve more credit for the Champions League".

"We didn't find our best level or our flawless level, and without this level at this place it is not easy to play football".

"They showed great possession of the ball and great attacking weapons".

The winger also started just one of their first six matches last season with Guardiola saying he didn't have a good preseason, but the Catalan says he isn't concerned.

"Even for me, I needed a period to know, to understand a little bit and everything about the way we wanted to play and in the way that we are aggressive without the ball".

City were able to drop down a gear without surrendering any of their control over the game, and they continued to create chances too with Sterling and Jesus both failing to hit the target.

"It's a challenge for all of them and it's a challenge for me, the manager, to keep the level and it's a challenge for the players to keep their level and compete with their mates".
