Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been warned new Manchester City signing Manuel Akanji made too many mistakes during his time at Borussia Dortmund.

Manchester City confirmed the signing of the Switzerland international on a five-year deal, with the 27-year-old having made 158 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit since January 2018.

Akanji became the sixth addition to Pep Guardiola ‘s side during the transfer window, with Haaland, Julian Alvarez, Kalvin Phillips, Sergio Gomez and Stefan Ortega Moreno all joining this summer.

After Manchester City confirmed the signing of Akanji from Borussia Dortmund, former Liverpool and Manchester City midfielder Didi Hamann warned Akanji makes too many mistakes.

“He’s a very good player, he’s been at Dortmund over the last few season, he’s just made too many mistakes,” Hamann said on Akanji on Sky Sports News.

“I think he’s a very capable player, if he maybe only plays 20 to 25 games his concentration levels will be better. Good player but at Dortmund made too many mistakes.”
