Pep Guardiola was formally introduced as Manager of Manchester City on Sunday in front of about 5,800 fans and media. The new MCFC Manager answered several questions from supporters and discussed the team he inherits.

"First I have to meet my players and know them. I know them from TV. I have to hug them, kick their arse and, after, I need time to know them. I play against Manchester City in the last two or three years many times. I spoke many times with Txiki Begiristain, the sporting director. I know them, I know their quality but they have to show me, show the fans again. The past is the past. The people don’t come here to remember what we did. We are here to try again."
