Pep Guardiola had warned new Manchester City signings that he won’t change Manchester City’s style of play to accommodate them.

Julian Alvarez, Erling Haaland, Stefan Ortega Moreno and Kalvin Phillips all arrived at the Etihad Stadium this summer to bolster the City squad in what was a particularly busy summer transfer window.

“We are not going to change the way we play,” Guardiola told Manchester City’s official website. 

“We’re going to adapt the quality that the players have to be involved in the way we play, but we are not going to change the way we play.

“Why should we change the way we play when we did really quite well in these last seasons?

“But we want Erling, Julian and Kalvin, and of course, Stefan, we want the best of them, the best version of them, adapting what you want to play.

“I’m pretty sure it’s happened. It’s [been] just a few days together, but the feeling is really good for all of them.”
