Crazybola.com – Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insists he is not worried about his lack of attacking options after the club failed to land Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo.
After deciding to part ways with Sergio Aguero, the 2020/21 Premier League champions continue to look for the ideal replacement. Manchester City started by trying to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane this summer.
Unfortunately, Pep Guardiola’s efforts did not produce results. Because a football club based in North London is desperately fighting to keep it. Even in order not to join the Etihad Stadium, Tottenham Hotspur boss Daniel Levy set a high selling price.
No doubt, Manchester City turned their attention to bringing Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus. Unfortunately, the top clubs in the Premier League were made to bite their fingers. Because, the Portuguese superstar returned to Manchester United. The Old Trafford camp officially announced the transfer of the player on Friday (27/8) night WIB. The Red Devils confirm that they have reached an agreement with the Old Lady.
Practically Pep Guardiola will now rely on players like Jack Grealish who just brought in the summer. In addition, entrust the names of Raheem Sterling, Ferran Torres, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, and Liam Delap who is still 18 years old.
Speaking to the media ahead of the match against Arsenal, the Spanish football coach said that Manchester City don’t have a typical striker like Liam. But his team had another alternative.
Pep Guardiola insists he believes the Citizens can still score goals like in recent years either without a striker or pure striker. According to him, what his club must do is continue to play well and continue to feel hungry to score goals like against Norwich City. Then also must be able to remain consistent in every match.
In addition, he also hopes that in the next few days the players in his team will not leave.
It will be interesting to see whether Pep Guardiola’s team without a pure striker can score many goals or not in the 2021/22 competition.
