Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola stets tha his club is too weak to win the Uefa Champions League
Pep Guardiola comes out on top in the first Manchester derby of the season as Man City defeated defeated United 2 – 1 at Old Trafford though the Red Devils will feels they should have scored one of their many chances.
Kevin De Bruyne and kelechi Iheanacho scored before Ibrahimovic pulled one back on the stroke of half time.
Guardiola said: “We made good things and bad things [at the derby] but it’s just three points. Of course we’re happy but we have to improve. We have to improve a lot of things. We are first in the Premier League but the way we have played so far will not be enough to win the Premier League. The way we have played in these six games is not good enough to win the Champions League.”
Speaking about hi squad the coach noted: “Bravo is so strong. I saw the action of the goal – three or four times after he played with personality. That’s what I tried to say after the game. I was convinced before the game and after I feel the same. Claudio is going to make mistakes in the future, I’ll tell you now – he won’t save all the goals. I’m pretty sure of that.”

He also said:” Two players who are unlikely to need a morale boost from their boss are midfielders David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne. The duo continued superb early season form at Old Trafford, where De Bruyne opened the scoring and Silva schemed inventively throughout.”
He stressed: “When they were fit under Manuel, they were amazing. I didn’t discover them. I just put them on the pitch in good condition.”
