GUARDIOLA GIVES YOUTH A CHANCE BUT ADDS SILVA AND AGUERO ON CHINA TRIP
Pep Guardiola is giving the youths a chance to show him what they have got ahead of the new season which promises a lot of competition already.
However, the Spanish manager is taking established play makers in Sergio Aguero and David Silva along to the trip to China.
Twelve top young players would be joining in the team that will move to China after their time in Germany. Top stars that were yet to resume for training didn’t feature in the game against German Champions Bayern Munich but they are set to begin their preparations on tour and might feature when City play United in the International Champions Cup.
The senior players include Argentine players Aguero and Otamendi, English players Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling and Spain internationals David Silva and Nolito who joined from Spain this summer. Guardiola will be giving the young ones a chance at the pre season, even as the move is subject to Visa issues. Promising young talents Cameron Humphreys, Tosin Adarabioyo, Brandon Barker and James Horsfield are among those to get an opportunity to show case their talents.
David Silva would remain with the team going into the new season, despite reports of an overhaul. Guardiola hasn’t made many changes to the team yet but is understood to be active underground. Though prone to injuries, the left footed play maker is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and has had played a huge part for Club and Country for several years. When fit he is the engine room of the club though not as celebrated as the rest.
With the frequent injuries, his future at the club is not wearing as much god look but Guardiola has resorted to keeping the player this season.
