Manchester City reacted admirably back from the Group A loss to Paris Saint-Germain with a complete performance against Club Brugge.
City were on point from start to finish, with the 5-1 victory, that could have been more. A win away, many great performers and our South Americans back. We move.
On to the reaction-
“We were so good. It was one of the best performances we have done in Europe,”
“I am not going to underestimate Brugge. I know them quite well.
“I spoke with Vincent Kompany and he gave me some info. He knows Brugge better than me.
“He said be careful in the final third, they have a fast central defender, especially the left one.
“I think we made a really good performance in many aspects so they could not be who they are. I know perfectly well who they are.
“I looked over Brugge during the international break. I looked at many games. I know how good they did against PSG.
“It is a few weeks before they travel to Manchester, and I am pretty sure they are going to adjust.
“We found a lot of passes with Phil. We had runners in behind. We could have scored more goals, we had many chances.
“All of us are delighted with the performance we have done.”
“Cole has a special quality in front of the box, a talent that is difficult to find,”
“I know how it works with young players. We have to be calm and patient. His position is the second team but at the same time he trains with us and works with our principles.
“I am happy with the goal. He could have done a few actions a little bit better, but that is normal. It is experience. Step by step we give our young players an opportunity.”
