Ex-Gunner Sagna on Pep Guardiola ahead of today's PL clash
- Bacary remembers his time playing for Pep, praising his tactical approach to work
- He believes City will only continue to improve under Guardiola
Sagna can't help praising Pep for his methodical approach to work, which left our ex-defender impressed. “Training was good. You had to be really focused; he’s a really chilled guy but in training he’s focused and he’s very, very demanding. I think you can see the difference this year – they didn’t let anything slip, and his training is quite tactical. He wants his players to always give 100 percent in his training sessions because you play like you train. His sessions were shorter but very intensive.”
Many have questioned whether City can keep up their remarkable achievements from the 2017-2018 campaign when asked if they could struggle under the pressure, Sagna’s answer was simple: “No.”
“For me, the season they had was just a joke. When you think about their age, they’re all around 23-24 years old so they should have five good years to play together and they’ve tried to secure that, we’ve seen some players renewing their contracts. They can only improve. I think they’re going to do really well.”
It remains to be seen if Pep's side will be stronger than that of Emery.
