Carlo Ancelotti Backs Pep Guardiola For Manchester City Success

Carlo Ancelotti Backs Pep Guardiola For Manchester City Success

Pep Guardiola has claimed that City are ten years behind local rivals Man United in terms of status.

The forward has had better luck playing in Premier League 2, scoring two and assisting another in four appearances in the reserve competition.

"I started to play football as a young guy". I said 60-65 I would not go to training. "That was what I wanted to say".

"I'm not thinking that I'm going to retire". "I thought I knew about football, but when I started to work with him a new world appeared in front of me". I want to do something else in my life, but not in the next three, four, five, six, seven years.

Guardiola believes it is not just the manager but several other factors that determine success at a club.

He attempted to clear that up as he held a press conference to preview Friday's FA Cup third-round tie at West Ham.

Ford Abandons Plan For $1.6 Billion Mexico Factory
Ford Motor Company will reverse its plan to invest $1.6 billion in Mexico and instead spend the money in the U.S. It did not say how many jobs were planned for the now-canceled plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

Now Guardiola has also conceded that it could take as long as 10 years for City to be viewed in the same light as his previous sides Bayern Munich and Barcelona - or even Manchester United.

"For Manchester City fans, Manchester City are the most important thing".

Manchester City are now placed fourth in the Premier League table and are seven points behind league leaders Chelsea. "Always that remains", he said. If people don't understand that, I'm sorry. In terms of titles, however, we are far from where we should be.

But Guardiola clarified his comments, saying: "When I said to compare the titles with Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid, we are behind".

West Ham have recently returned to some decent form after an terrible start to the season, but most recently have lost to Manchester United and Leicester City following three wins in a row.

The Spaniard is finding out that the more cut-throat Premier League, where Leicester City's title triumph last season showcased a strength in depth missing in Spain and Germany where he once managed, can sap a manager's energy.
