Closed

Tottenham star striker Harry Kane has been advised to leave the London club and seal a switch to a bigger Premier League club if he has any intention of winning silverware before he finishes his career or move past his best years.

Manchester City had built a system tailormade for Guardiola even before his appointment was confirmed four years.


Manchester City didn’t achieve much under Guardiola in his debut season in the Premier League but all that changed in the second season when he led the Citizens to the Premier League title with a record 100 points.

Despite the domestic dominance, the shadow of failed Champions League campaigns loomed over Guardiola and Manchester City with many believing that the Spaniard was appointed to deliver the much coveted Champions League trophy. In his fourth season last term, Guardiola and Manchester City had to settle for the Capital One Cup only as they finished 18 points behind champions Liverpool.
