David Moyes in bizarre claim about Pep Guardiola’s Man City

Sunday Observer - - SPORT - Teamtalk

MANCH­ESTER - West Ham boss David Mo yes claims Pep Guardiola’s Manch­ester City can­not be con­sid­ered a great team un­til they have lifted the Premier League tro­phy.

Free-scor­ing City have been in scin­til­lat­ing form this sea­son, rack­ing up 13 wins and a draw from 14 games to build an eight­point ad­van­tage at the top of the table.

Moyes’ strug­gling Ham­mers have the un­en­vi­able task of play­ing at the Eti­had Sta­dium to­day and, while the Scot has been im­pressed with the cur­rent City squad, he be­lieves they must clinch silverware to jus­tify re­cent hype and con­firm their rep­uta- tion as an out­stand­ing side.

“I wouldn’t say they’ve got a long way to go but what I would say is they’ve not done any­thing yet as far as they’ve not won the Premier­ship yet,” ex-Manch­ester United man­ager Moyes said.

“And I think there’s been some great teams in the Premier League who have won it over the years.

For­tunes

“Maybe at the end peo­ple will say they are a great team but un­til that’s done then you can’t re­ally say so.”

West Ham’s for­tunes have so far failed to im­prove since for­mer Sun­der­land boss Moyes re­placed the sacked Slaven Bilic early last month.
