Pep Guardi­ola warns City

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

ROT­TER­DAM. - Manch­ester City must not get car­ried away by their 4-0 win at Feyeno­ord and stay true to their at­tack­ing phi­los­o­phy on the road if they are to do well in the Cham­pi­ons League soc­cer, man­ager Pep Guardi­ola has said.

City equalled their big­gest Cham­pi­ons League vic­tory, de­stroy­ing the Dutch cham­pi­ons in Rot­ter­dam through defender John Stones’s brace while for­wards Ser­gio Aguero and Gabriel Je­sus too scored a goal each.

Guardi­ola said he was pleased with the re­sult but stressed the need to guard against com­pla­cency, point­ing to City’s poor away record in Europe last sea­son. “It’s so im­por­tant to win the first game and though noth­ing is achieved yet, it’s a great start for us this evening,” Guardi­ola told the club’s web­site.

“Last sea­son we weren’t able to win any games away in the Cham­pi­ons League and we spoke about that among the squad.

“. . . It’s im­por­tant for us to see if we can go away from home with the same men­tal­ity we have at the Eti­had. The same high press, at­tack­ing phi­los­o­phy and not con­ced­ing on the counter-at­tack, so I‘m very pleased tonight.” - Reuters.
