Guardiola wants more from 'special' Sane

Guardiola wants more from 'special' Sane”

The towering defender hasn't been in action since suffering a calf problem while featuring for Belgium against Gibraltar in a World Cup qualifier.

Guardiola has suggested Kompany will not be ready until after the upcoming global break but hopes he will be fit for the Premier League trip to Leicester on November 18.

But Guardiola says Sane, 21, and Sterling, 22, must not stop trying to develop their games if they are to get to the very top.

Kompany has returned with a positive diagnosis and Guardiola is keen to get him back into the squad to provide defensive competition for John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi.

"Kompany just travelled (to Barcelona) so we'll see how his injury is", Pep told the assembled press. "In the next seven to 10 days, he'll be coming back".

Pep Guardiola has rubbished Jurgen Klopp's comments that Manchester City could have sewn up the title by January but warned the rest of the Premier League there is still plenty more to come from his side.

It is clear to see that Guardiola's side are the team to beat this year, steamrolling almost all that has been put in front of them, with only a 1-1 draw at home to Everton the solitary blotch on an otherwise flawless record - both domestically and in Europe. We had a recovery day, yesterday we were off.

The City boss felt his side were not clinical enough in the win over West Brom and that there were too many errors against a Baggies side that had failed to win their previous eight games.

"So it is important when you win to be comfortable but also when you don't play at the highest level, you are still able to win".

Guardiola described Maurizio Sarri's Napoli as one of the best he has ever faced as a player or manager after City defeated them 2-1 in a closely fought tie at the Etihad Stadium earlier this month, and the Spaniard is expecting an even tougher contest in the return fixture.

"We've given them a game".

"We are so happy for Phil, for Joel and the goalkeeper", Guardiola said.

"It's good for English football. Big congratulations for the team".
