The Frenchmen talks about the philosophy of Manchester City's future coach

Henry Guardiola

In Manchester City we're already counting days before Pep Guardiola's arrival. The 'Sky Blues' made Santpedor native's signing public at the beginning of this year and everyone is wondering how the team will look with the former Barça coach's arrival. In England, one of the most legitimate voices to talk about Guardiola is the one of Thierry Henry, with whom he shared 2 years at Barça. 'Titi' explained on Saturday to Sky Sports a few details about Guardiola as for his team managing style, stressing on the high level of perfection he's constantly looking for:

"He's not scared to change stuff. If you don't fit the bill, he's going to let you know you're in trouble. He only wants to win and dominate" the former French player indicated, implying that Guardiola's touch will be felt when we see City's squad next season. Risking hisself to give names, Henry thinks goalkeeper Joe Hart could be one of the victims of Guardiola's arrival: "I love Joe Hart, I think he's a great goalkeeper, but because of the way Pep Guardiola likes to play, everything starts from the goalkeeper. You see Neuer, he plays almost like a sweeper, he's here, with composure."

Lastly, he pointed out how demanding Guardiola is with every member of the club's structure: "He will demand a lot from his players, from the medical staff, from the kitman, from people that make coffee. Everything has to be perfect: intensity, work ethic, and keeping the ball." It is Henry's word.
