Joe Hart has acknowledged he may need to leave Manchester City permanently to resurrect his career. Starting goalkeeper Ederson is not on the roster for the United States preseason tour, having returned from participation in the 2018 World Cup with Brazil, although he didn't play as he served as Alisson's backup.
Riyad Mahrez made his debut for Manchester City as they lost 1-0 to Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup, but Pep Guardiola was not happy with the Bundesliga side.
Manchester City is yet to welcome their main players into the first-team due to their participation in the World Cup in Russian Federation, but new summer signing Riyad Mahrez was involved in the defeat.
"We spoke while we worked in this one week and the courage, intensity and desire to play was very good".
"Both very good", Guardiola responded.
But, more important, he hinted that he has the flexibility and intelligence needed to fit into Guardiola's fluent tactical systems, which last season led to City's record-breaking Premier League triumph. "I'm glad he has faith in me", he said. "I want to have a great season with goals, assists, and help the team win and carry the team sometimes and I can help the team, that's what I want to do for the season".
"I had a point to prove", said Sancho.
"We did many good things", said Guardiola. After a disjointed, disappointing 2017-18 under first Peter Bosz and then Peter Stoger, the club showed signs of returning to form against the reigning Premier League champions. "We had one week of training and I am so satisfied in the performance from these guys".
"I've got a lot of good relationships with the boys in the team and I thought Jordan Pickford had a good World Cup".
