The Manchester City goalkeeper has endured a torrid couple of seasons, which has seen him relegated to a third-choice, unwanted member of Pep Guardiola's squad and even further down Gareth Southgate's pecking order for England.
As with the majority of Premier League clubs during the season, media are mostly shut out of training sessions at Manchester City, barring Champions League matches.
Across the 38 games City only lost twice - to Liverpool and United - and also picked up the EFL Cup, while reaching the Champions League quarter-finals.
Guardiola, who denied having an interest in the Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic, also insisted it will be results that dictate whether he fulfils the three-year contract he signed with City earlier this summer. "I understand completely and I'm not concerned about what one of us says one day and the other one say because the circumstances change".
"I don't like it when my colleagues speak about me or my players so I'm not going to say that".
Guardiola's men broke 11 records in all but the former Barcelona coach envisages a far more hard campaign when the action kicks-off next month.
"We have players in each position. We have a good squad, we can handle players in different positions, we'll see if we decide to buy one player or wait".
Guardiola said: "They are contenders to win the title and they will be in the future with their history". Liverpool believe they need these players and spend this money so I'm not judging what they're doing.
"The result was not the mirror of the game, but it's more important in this period the performance", former Napoli boss Sarri told chelseafc.com. "If they believe it's the best for Liverpool and their fans, it's flawless for them, so no problem at all".
"Football trainers are always in a unsafe position".
"All the contenders, United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham will be stronger, Everton took a good manager, West Ham with Manuel [Pellegrini], always the expectation is high".
