Pep Guardiola claims Premier League spending is 'unsustainable'

Pep Guardiola claims Premier League spending is 'unsustainable'

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we will not spend how we spent this season", Guardiola told reporters ahead of City's Premier League opener at Brighton on Saturday.

Both Mendy and Walker are very attacking full backs, which should suit the Guardiola system well this season, as both Mendy and Walker had 5 assists in their respected leagues last season.

The trip to the coast will be start to what is expected to be a season of pressure for Manchester City, as they head to the AMEX Stadium with many of people expecting the Citizens to begin their title charge tonight. We were not able with those players to find a solution.

Guardiola struck a satisfied tone when discussing his raft of fresh full-backs and their ability to have a transformative effect on City's play this season. "The group of players this season are going to stay here for a long time".

"For us there are some great examples of teams that have gone up and stayed up".

"Like every club that´s promoted to the Premier League, it´s to finish 17th or higher. I'm calm and I'm ready to help my team". "It will not be easy but we travel to win the game".

"Going forward, I don´t think that there is anyone who can match us because we have so many attacking options and great players".

City have spent around £200 million on new signings this summer after finishing 15 points behind champions Chelsea in the Premier League last season. I´m going to be fearless and say the game will finish 4-0.

"City were very interested in me, but it was many things that made me sign".

"I would like in three or four passes to score a goal, but sometimes it's not possible and you have to move them [the opposition] a little bit more, and because our strikers are not Peter Crouch, our strikers are completely different, they are not strong in the air". Ederson nailed down the number one goalie at Benfica last season, as he helped them reach a fourth consecutive League title. When I am not playing or training, I watch football all the time.

Defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo have all come in along with goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva.

Speaking on his chances in the upcoming PL, the ex Bayern Munchen boss said; "Last season at my first press conference we were favourites, so nothing has changed".
