As one of the best coaches in football today, Guardiola has built Manchester City into the new hegemon of the Premier League in just one season. Last season, Manchester City won the League Championship and the League Cup. In the last season, Guardiola led Blue Moon to take the league, the League Cup and the FA Cup. The Grand Slam, which is a very remarkable achievement, you must know that the Premier League is known as the most competitive league in football today.
What Guardiola can’t understand is that Manchester City, which is invincible in the domestic arena, seems to change as soon as it arrives in the Champions League. As another team, weak style and lack of fighting spirit have emerged one after another. The best result of Manchester City in the Champions League in the past three seasons is actually only the quarter-finals. You must know that the opponent who eliminated Manchester City is not the top European power such as Huang Saren. The team. Guardiola’s first season of coaching Manchester City was eliminated by the dark horse Monaco, only to stop in the round of 16. Considering Guardiola took over soon, the outside world can understand.
But in the next two seasons, Manchester City However, they were successively eliminated by domestic rivals Liverpool and Tottenham, and eventually stopped in the quarter-finals. This made the outside world very confused. Aside from Liverpool, Manchester City has an absolute advantage against Tottenham in the domestic arena. , But in the more important UEFA Champions League, Manchester City was incredibly disadvantaged. If one occurrence is an accident, then two consecutive seasons have shown that there are indeed problems within Manchester City.
It may not be Guardiola to dominate the domestic arena The ultimate goal of coaching Manchester City is to regain the Champions League title is the biggest wish of Guardiola, otherwise he would not choose to leave Bayern. You must know that Guardiola also dominated the domestic arena during Bayern coaching, but he has been unable to do so in the Champions League. The breakthrough gave him the idea of leaving the team and heading to Manchester City to challenge. Now that Manchester City has dominated the domestic arena as hoped, Guardiola may only be looking forward to the Champions League, and signings are undoubtedly the fastest way.
Many City’s midfielders are already saturated. And the strength is very strong, even in the top level of European football, Guardiola is quite confident about this, but the reason why Manchester City's performance in the Champions League is not satisfactory, except for the team's mental outlook. In addition, there may be some hidden dangers in the midfielder's strength. Guardiola knows that if Manchester City want to compete for the Champions League next season, thatSo it is necessary to further strengthen the strength of the midfield.
Accurately speaking, Manchester City wants to strengthen the position of the midfielder and the center back. As the midfielder Fernandinho is getting older, his state has gradually declined. It may be difficult to maintain his peak state in multi-line combat next season. Therefore, Guardiola urgently needs to introduce a top midfielder. In fact, Guardiola has alreadyAfter requesting the club to buy, but ultimately failed to achieve the goal due to various reasons, now Atletico Rodri has officially joined, with these two generals, Manchester City's midfielder position can be worry-free.
With Rodri, Manchester City’s lineup has become more and more perfect, but Guardio La also needs a top central defender to complete the final puzzle, after all, Kompany has left Manchester City. Leicester CityThe main central defender Maguire has become the main target of Guardiola. The main difference between the two sides may be just the transfer fee and treatment. However, in order to meet Guardiola's requirements, I believe Manchester City will still fully introduce Maguire. After Rodry and Maguire are in place, Manchester City's lineup has almost no shortcomings, and Guardiola can once again attack the Champions League.
such asIf such a Manchester City are still unable to win the Champions League, I am afraid that Guardiola has no good way. Perhaps the final outcome is the same as when he was coaching at Bayern. He can only choose to leave and find new challenges. In fact, many European giants, including Juventus, have invited Guardiola to coach, but Guardiola is confident that Manchester City will win the Champions League, so he chose to temporarily decline the invitation of these giants. From this point of view, even if Guardiola leaves Manchester City, he can still continue to coach the European giants, which is his confidence.
