Manchester City won the whole title- they were five games ahead of the second on the list which was United (who lost on their home field by West Bromwich Albion). It is a clear win and is a whole lot of room to breathe, too.
Manchester City managed to score 87 points for this whole season while United was behind by 16 points. Looking down from up here- Manchester City was doing very well. “There is still a lot of room for improvement,” said Walker (27 years old). “He has read some articles on the internet,” he continued, “that said they need to win things continuously to be considered one of the best teams in Premier League. All of his teammates want to be recognized as one of the very best.”
During the Champions League, somewhere in quarter-finals – City lost 5 to 1 to none other but Liverpool. The game against Liverpool showed them that they are not a 100% perfect team – said Walker.
Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City manager, is in charge for the second season in the roll. During this time they also won the whole League Cup. Pep won the Champions League two times while being with Barcelona and also with the same team he won the La Liga three times. Among his great wins is the Bundesliga. Pep was on top three times with the powerful team of Bayern Munich. These are no small achievements. While there are some people in football who have been doing that their whole lives and never actually won the Champions League, Pep Guardiola has done it a number of times. For that reason, you should really take a look at his philosophy and his way of seeing and planning the game – basically the way he does it – commented Walker.
Walker continues to talk about how it is like to play under Guardiola-
It is all in the details and many other managers don’t actually pay attention to them while Pep keeps talking about them and bringing them into focus day in and day out. There is no escaping them. They are all tailored to get us more opportunities to score the goal. Walker said that it makes a big difference with what foot they accept the ball – it has to be the correct foot, not the preferred foot of the player.
There is a lot in the tactics, there are many of them. Walker had to think about his positioning and how to stay focused and how to save energy to achieve great results. All these details and many others served City well this season.
