Why Manchester City Cannot Win EPL This Season – Gary Neville
Former Manchester United player, Gary Neville has stated that the current Manchester City team are not good enough to win the EPL this season.
According to him, the club’s manager Pep Guardiola is aware of this.
Guardia sees his side depleted in defense after Vincent Kompany moved to Anderlecht while injury plagues Aymeric Laporte and John Stones.
To makeup for the problem, Guardiola starts defensive midfielder Fernandinho alongside Nicolas Otamendiin defense.
To make matters worse, the Spaniard stated that City cannot afford to make signings this January transfer.
“You have to think that City will spend in January,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“I saw this morning that Guardiola said they didn’t have any money. Well, they’ve got more than everybody else.
“They bought Aymeric Laporte in January a year and a half ago, and I feel that they’re going to have to do the same again.
“This won’t be good enough for the Champions League or the Premier League. Guardiola will know it – he knows the standard more than anybody.”
