Manchester City No2 Ruben Cousillas is confident the players will quickly take to manager Manuel Pellegrini.
Cousillas has followed Pellegrini to City this summer.
â€œHe has lots of personality, is always clear and handles his team brilliantly. His drive comes naturally â€“ you cannot learn it, or buy it.
â€œManuel has a way of convincing others to fall in love with his ideas. He is a mix of football intellectual and super-intelligent person, and his blend of engineering studies and football career is one which is hard to find.
â€œAs assistant I will have the playersâ€™ ear, but Manuel speaks daily with them, while they are warming up or after the game, so the players always know what he is thinking."
