Pep Guardiola said that the opportunity to chase down a host of multiple records for the newly crowned champions focused in the final few weeks of the campaign.
Manchester City broke the premier league record on their last game of the pitch. They took their season’s tally to 97 points with a 3-1 win over Brighton on Wednesday. A victory for City over Southampton on Sunday will see them finish the campaign with a century (100 points).
They have also equaled the English top flight record of 31 wins in a season and racked up a record of 105 goals so far in 37 matches.
Pep told the conference that in the last few weeks these numbers have helped them to say focused.
The reason behind city winning the league —
As you know Manchester City won the league by winning 18 consecutive matches in a row those victories granted them the opportunity to win the title and they did.
Pep added that they made a high investment last year because it was an old team. It was 10-11 players more than 31 years old. Yaya Toure is set to leave the city, and the city may be going to sign one or two players.
“Last season I said maybe 1000 times that Sergio Kun Aguero will stay at Manchester City until his time is over,” Guardiola said.
The club is keen to hand sterling a new long-term contract after his most successful season in the league in which has found the net 23 times in all competitions.
“The club, chairman and myself want him to stay a long time, renew his contract – but we are going on holiday in few days,” Said Guardiola
“We all want him to stay as long as possible.
