Pep Guardiola has only been at Manchester City for a few weeks, but already he is making a big impact. Supporters love his interview style, his gesticulating on the touchline, and the intensity he has already added to the team, which was displayed when a teen-heavy City side narrowly lost to a fairly strong Bayern side in their first pre-season friendly.
But what of the players? Two of them, Gaël Clichy and Fabian Delph, have already spoke glowingly of Pep. Clichy told City Watch writer Adam Bailey, “he’s probably the best coach I’ve ever had”, and that was after just a week! Angelino said after impressing against Bayern Munich: “Every single day, I’ve been enjoying every moment. I just don’t want this to finish.”
But the most revealing words have come from Delph and Clichy, who had the following to say to the press.
Had interesting chat with Fabian Delph earlier. Says he has learned more in 3 weeks from Pep than in entire career before.
