Man City's Pep Guardiola: Breaking records can help team stay focused

Man City's Pep Guardiola: Breaking records can help team stay focused

City have always been keen to secure the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager's services for longer but both they, and Guardiola himself, have been relaxed about the situation. He has a year left on his contract and will sit down with the board in the summer to discuss a new deal.

"We'll speak to the club at the end of the season", he said.

"We have one year to defend our title. We have to convince the players they have got to be ready to face them". It also depends on my energy and my strength to keep going. I know how handsome it is to finish the season with that lovely trophy.

"In the end, what we have done is to be better than 19 other teams, nothing else".

Kyle Walker has hailed the personable approach taken by Pep Guardiola, describing the Manchester City manager as a friend as well as a boss.

"I don't know, football changes a lot", he said. Of course, we have absolutely everything here to help the guys, and the guys know how outstanding they work. But you can lose that, you can drop it. "Now it's OK, everything's good, but football changes over nothing".

Manchester City and De Bruyne, in particular, has been a model of consistency from the first game of the Premier League season until they secured their title last weekend with five games to spare.

Manchester City have only lost two league games all season - against Liverpool and Manchester United.

So is his affinity for Barkley, a player he once again called "a tremendous talent". "I'm going to consider all options". Mayock said that a few years ago having a massive body that could plug holes and stop run was the big priority.

What arguably marks out City is a consistency of spending, with two expensive players (£35m to £55m) across every position, none reared by City and most foreign imports.

"I'm proud to be part of this organisation".

"I think the most important thing that makes us feel more satisfied is that the season really was very good, it's the way we feel in training, the way we feel in games".

City, who will stage a title party when they host Swansea on Sunday, have a chance to underline their credentials over their last five matches.

Guardiola added: "Believe me, I would dream to play in the final of the Champions League".

Should the Citizens win all of their remaining games, they will finish with 102 points.

Arsenal's "Invincibles" of 2003-04 would have had far too much pace and power for City as well. In these five games we'll see how we react to the success.
