Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says his squad will not need huge changes in the future accepting this summer spending will not be sustainable.
The former Barcelona manager believes that he has put up a squad that will not need huge additions in the coming years.
Ahead of Manchester City’s PL opener against newly promoted side Brighton and Hove Albion, Guardiola said; “We want to put energy in the team for the next five years”.
“We have spent, of course, but all the teams have spent”, he continued.
“In the next few years City will buy one, two, maybe three players. The current players are young and will stay for the future”, he added.
Speaking on his chances in the upcoming PL, the ex Bayern Munchen boss said; “Last season at my first press conference we were favourites, so nothing has changed”.
“I was confident then too”.
“We are going to see at the end of the season what happens”, he indicated.
Manchester City will travel to Brighton at 16:30GMT.
