Guardiola: Why I've changed tactics from Barcelona to Man City

Pep Guardiola admits the personnel he has at Manchester City has seen him change his system to what he employed at Barcelona.

Speaking with SFR Sport, Guardiola admits his tactics are different to what he worked with at Barca.

He explained: "The tactics depend on the quality of the players. When we have Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, Messi and Fábregas, it is normal to play through the centre. When we have Sané, Sterling and De Bruyne, players that attack spaces more, we play differently.

"I did not invent anything at all. I feel football in this way, I see my players and I try to see how to create connections between them."
