Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was full of praise for Yokohama F Marinos after yesterday's 3-1 win.
“It was an incredible test for us, incredible game, it was incredibly demanding," Guardiola said.
“For the conditions, for the quality of opponent, and his proposal, his high pressing, the way he plays with the ball.
“So, it was good from both sides, it was an incredible test for our progression for the next game and for the future, so a big compliment to the players, no injuries, so we beat an incredible team.
“People say 'ahh Yokohama in Japan' but I know exactly how good they.
“Now we need time and we need more games to be in the best condition."
