Man City's First Departure Revealed

16 Mai 2017

Leicester honoured goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel with the two biggest awards at their end-of-season ceremony on Monday evening.

The Citizens secured a crucial three points in their bid to qualify for next season's Champions League and moved up to third in the Premier League after the victory.

He was a key member of the side that won the Premier League title in 2012, scoring the opening goal in the dramatic 3-2 final-day win over Queens Park Rangers that ensured City became champions of England for the first time since 1968.

"If next season is not going well", he said, "I'll have one more year of contract and they are going to change the manager". They made it very hard for us, they played very deep and we didn't create enough chances. "Especially the next one at home in front of our own fans because I think they deserve it", Fernandinho said.

Guardiola is in the process of shaping his squad for next season, and while Zabaleta's future has been decided, those of City's six other out-of-contract players remain in the balance.

Having invested so much effort in recruiting Guardiola - they first approached him in 2012 before finally landing their man a year ago - it is unthinkable City would wield the axe so soon.

"They are professionals, they will play to win", Guardiola said at a press conference yesterday. He then added that he would understand if the City board chose to sack him next season if results did not improve.

China must act on 'provocative' N Korea: PM
Moon had said in his inauguration speech that he was willing to visit Pyongyang "in the right circumstances" to ease tensions. It also warned that if the US attempts to provoke the Pyongyang "it will not escape from the biggest disaster in the history".

"Some managers will have that pressure so I have to handle that".

City have more pressing transfer priorities this summer, namely in defence, and with Ilkay Gundogan needing time to rec-over from his serious knee injury, Toure would provide trusted cover. I can see a relatively comfortable win. I will try with the club, with the players, with the staff, with the chairman, with the sporting director, to do it.

"And after that if the results are not [good], if we are judged just for the results then we will be sacked and another one is coming here".

And Pablo, you know, did his last start against United and was playing against a young lad with a lot of speed [Anthony Martial] but he's got so much experience that he knew to get in a challenge straight away and not make it obvious that he is lacking for pace against some players.

Kevin De Bruyne has provided 15 assists in the Premier League this season; the joint-most by a Manchester City player in a single season (also David Silva in 2011/12).

Pep Guardiola: "WBA will play to win".

"Gabriel is a guy who understands perfectly - he's a young player, 19-years-old - still has a lot, a lot of things to improve".
