Manchester United are still a great team - Manchester City Manager, Pep Guardiola

Manchester City Boss, Pep Guardiola believes Manchester United remain one of football’s leading clubs and feels criticism of his old rival Jose Mourinho simply comes with the territory of top-flight management.

Mourinho made another impassioned defense of his own managerial record on Friday, addressing the media ahead of Sunday’s trip to Burnley on the back of consecutive losses against Brighton and Tottenham.

Despite champions City’s own Premier League slip-up in a 1-1 draw at Wolves last time out, there is a contrasting air of serenity around Guardiola’s camp as they prepare for the visit of Newcastle United on Saturday.

When the struggles of his once-bitter adversary from their days at Barcelona and Real Madrid were brought up, the 47-year-old was in a conciliatory mood.

The Manchester City Boss, Guardiaola said;
“It’s our job, unfortunately. It’s happened to me in the past. As manager, our job depends on results,”.

“When we win we are good, when we do not win we are not good. It is simple like that.

“The important thing is to know the quality of the managers. I believe when they get to this level in the Premier League it is because they are top, top managers.

“[United] remain a great team, a top team. We are just in August. They are there [the bottom half of the table] but it is just in August and there are a lot of points to play for now.”
