Man City boss Guardiola: With Ratcliffe Man Utd will be back

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes Sir Jim Ratcliffe will be good for Manchester United.

The new United co-owner has been doing interviews this week.

And Guardiola said: "As [soon] as the teams admit it they will be closer to us.

"If they want to deny it for things that are not the reality then it's their problem - it's not our problem.

"When I've been below teams I've always admired them and thought about what we need to do to be close, to challenge them.

"When we were below and United were winning, we were watching them, admiring them. That's why, for these type of comments, that I have the feeling that they will be back.

"It's not about [being] worried. I'm pretty sure with Sir Jim Ratcliffe and the other people that United are going to take a step forwards.

"I feel that they know exactly what they have to do, appoint the people they need to appoint with their experience in the business world to make projects better.

"But that is normal. It's not just United - all the teams want it. We want to be there and as long as I'm here, we will try to be there again.

"What I want is Man City, my team, being there. The rest, I don't care."
