Guardiola: I'm going to learn a lot from Maurizio Sarri

May JohnsonAug 05, 2018

Sterling's representatives put talks with City director of football Txiki Begiristain on hold before the World Cup, in the hope that good displays in Russian Federation would back up a case to push for an increase to £250,000 a week. There'll be times to back City with confidence going forward this season but this doesn't look like one of them.

We'd be insane not to add another player or two to our ranks this week, and Sarri appears to hold the same belief.

Brazilian-born Italian, Jorginho, a long-time target of Sunday's opponents, has followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea and it may not be long before the pair have Chelsea playing the sort of football that Pep Guardiola was gushing about before City took on Napoli in the Champions League past year. I saw three games - he gets it, the team in a short time plays like he wants.

"I talked with him yesterday", Sarri said on Friday when asked about the player's future.

"We made it clear from the day I arrived we want him, but deals are deals, agents are agents and players are players".

Manchester City are the Premier League's defending champions, and favourites to win the division again this season.

"The table of the last Premier League told me City 100, Chelsea 70 points", he said.

He said that needed border security reforms included the wall, the visa lottery, catch-and-release policies, and immigration laws. Trump is noting that Italian voters got "tired" of their country's immigration policies.

Chelsea will begin their season without Antonio Conte, who was shown the door by the Chelsea board.

And Guardiola is "starving" hungry for more success as they prepare to take on Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley later today.

"I'm ready. From my point of view, the players don't have to be anxious".

"My job is this, to improve my players". Both sides have four victories apiece in the fixture. "He's impressed a lot during pre-season". "I want to win, because it is very important to have a trophy immediately". The likes of Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Nicolas Otamendi, John Stones, captain Vincent Kompany and a few more have only had a few days of training, and Guardiola will likely focus on building up their fitness for the season ahead instead of throwing them into the deep end straight away.

The Blues manager Maurizio Sarri has confirmed that he is not willing to part ways with two of his star players in this summer transfer window but Courtois' future is still in doubt.

Sarri swooped in at the last minute to bring Jorginho to Stamford Bridge.
