Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has hinted that he won’t guarantee any of his expensively-assembled squad a first-team place.
Guardiola said, “Hopefully they will understand that at the big clubs, you cannot have 11 players, so they have to compete with each other.
“For example, the last game in Brighton, Leroy didn’t play from the beginning. It was a key point and I changed our dynamic a little bit in front. Raz (Sterling), when he played minutes, he played good”.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss also said, “In that kind of level in the Premier League, the people who are 12, 13, 14 and play in the game, they are so, so important.
“When the game is in the last 15 or 20 minutes, the opponent is tired and we’ve moved them during the game, we can put into the game dynamic players like Bernardo Silva, Raz (Sterling) or Sane.
“In another game maybe its Sergio (Aguero) or Gabriel (Jesus). So it’s a point where we can win games in the last minutes.”
