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.
