Pep Guardiola tells 7,000 fans he aims to prove himself in Manchester City

New Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he moved to the Premier League to prove himself in England.

Around 7,000 fans turned up at Etihad Stadium to hear the 45-year-old speak for the first time as City manager

“That is why I am here. I proved myself in Barcelona and after I proved myself in Germany I wanted to prove myself in England,” he said.

“I cannot do that alone. I need the players, the staff. We need our fans. Without that, it is impossible.”

The Spaniard joins City after three years at Bayern Munich where he won a hat-trick of Bundesliga titles but failed to reach a Champions League final.
