Former Manchester city and West Ham star, Pablo Zabaleta believes Pep Guardiola will remain at City and continue to lead the club to success despite Juventus link speculations.
Zabaleta played under Guardiola during his first season at the Etihad before moving on to West Ham.
City won last season’s Premier League and are in the driving seat to retain their crown after beating Manchester United on Wednesday.
Guardiola, a serial winner with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and now City, has been linked with a move to Juventus, but Zabaleta has no concerns.
”He’s very good, he’s one of the best managers for sure. I spent one season with him, the first season for Pep in England. We did some amazing stuff, but also we made a few mistakes that cost us winning the Premier League or the Champions League,’ said Zabaleta, speaking to The Offside Rule Exclusives.
”For a club like Manchester City finishing the season without trophies is something that, as a player, hurts. When you’re there, you play to win trophies.
”Last season, the way City won the league, they have been playing some of the best football we have seen in the last few years in the Premier League.
”I’m sure that he will stay at Manchester City, he will keep improving the team and keep winning trophies,Zabaleta said.
