Some players have to be replaced - Pep Guardiola

Some players have to be replaced - Pep Guardiola

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is not worried about players leaving the club and he is focused on working with the ones he has for now.

Leroy Sane transfer to Bayern was confirmed yesterday and Captain David Silva will also be leaving at the end of the season.

Sergio Aguero and Ferandinho also have just one year left on their contract and it is not sure if they will renew or decide to move on to experience a new challenge.

Speaking ahead of the game against Liverpool later today, Pep Guardiola was asked whether he will have to rebuild as some numbers of players are leaving. The former Bayern coach confirmed he will have to but not for the lack of quality.

'Not for the lack of quality but the absence of Vinny, David... Sergio has one year left, I don’t know if he'll extend or not,' Guardiola replied

'Some players have to be replaced. It’s not a disaster thing, it's part of football for their age and normal circumstances.'

'It happens in other clubs and when players decide to leave, Jadon Sancho and Leroy - especially Leroy. We cannot do anything else, as a club, if guys don't want to stay they have to leave, we are not getting the best if they are not happy here.'

'This is the first thing and the second is with the age. It happens at clubs around the world, you never can be eternal. We have to accept that and try to take the right decisions to maintain the level that we have.'

Pep Guardiola also confirmed the club won't be looking to bring Jadon Sancho back as it was his decision to leave in 2017 and that it would make no sense to bring him back.

'He decided to leave, why should he come back?' Guardiola said

'When he decided to move to Dortmund it's not that he's going to come back. It would make no sense. If he wanted to leave, I'd say he doesn’t want to come back.'

'It's part of the process, we'd like to stay with the players of the last 10 years to be eternal but we grow in years and we have to replace them with new players.'
