Guardiola says Manchester City can’t win anything with just academy kids

Manchester City's coach Jose Guardiola has emphasized the role of experienced players in winning titles, The Guardian reported.

“This team needs to win titles and prizes and the process for the young players needs time and the best way is step by step. But the demand from the club [is] not winning the Champions League but being there every time, in all competitions and for that needs the [senior] players we have,” he said. “When they are talented, they will play. But at the same time, we have to compete every day to fight with the best in England and Europe. For that we need the David Silvas, Kevin De Bruynes, Sergio Agüeros and Fernandinhos. But if the basis of the team is young, it is not possible.”

Manchester City will host Wolverhampton on Sunday, 5pm Yerevan time.
