Pep Guardiola has stated he is more interested in winning trophies than instilling a new philosophy at Manchester City.
The Etihad stadium outfit are out of the champions league and only have the possibility of winning the FA cup and finishing in the top four of the EPL.
However, it is Guardiola’s first season in the premier league and the spaniard insists winning silverware is still paramount.
“I think it would be so arrogant for me to think I came here to change or introduce [a philosophy],” he said. “I am here to win titles and games and then the people will be happy with the way we played.
“I can assure you it was like that from the first day I met the chairman, Txiki [Begiristain], and my press conference here, I am not going to show you how managers are going to win a game, but I assure you the people will at least be proud of what they do.
“After I leave, like at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, people outside will judge me on the job I have done, and the players I worked with every day will say: ‘Okay, Pep helped me to be a better player’, while others will say: ‘Pep did not help me in any way to be a better player’. That is how it happens in all places.”
