Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has come out to say that his club definitely needs a new striker. He recently revealed that surviving without Aguero will be very tough this season.
According to him, City doesn’t have this weapon that other teams have like Chelsea, United or Tottenham have in front of goal, so everything has to be done as a team.
Pep added that his squad doesn’t have a player to score 25 league goals in a season, meaning a united effort from all his boys is needed to win a title.
His words, “We survived without [Aguero] in a good way in the way we played.”
“There are two options that we have right now: complaining or saying we have exceptional players.”
“We don’t have this weapon that other teams have like Chelsea, United or Tottenham or other teams so we have to use what we can do as a team.”
“We don’t have a player to score 25 league goals for himself so we have to do it as a team. This is what we will try this season.”
“Always I had a striker in my career – like goalkeepers, strikers are the biggest specialists.”
“I played with Samuel Eto’o, maybe the best or one of the best strikers I ever trained – what a player Samuel was – and [Thierry] Henry. I don’t know if he’s a striker or what he is but Lionel Messi was able to score a few goals. There was [Robert] Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Sergio here, always I played with a striker.”
“We want it as a club because I think the club knows, not for me, it needs in the next years a striker.”
“Sometimes it is possible, sometimes not because they are the more expensive ones and it is difficult to find them and when it’s not possible, it’s not possible.”
