Manchester City have quite a few stars in their ranks.
However, one problem they have had in the recent past is their penalty-taking abilities during matches.
The likes of Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne have missed penalties. Hence Sergio Aguero, Manchester City’s lethal goal scorer was put in charge. And he was brilliant against Leicester City.
“It’s not normal for the quality we have, but like I said to them the next one we’re going to score and the taker [must] be convinced, practice and be convinced and do it,” he said after the King Power victory.
“Next time we’re going to score and maybe it will be when we need it the most.”
“[De Bruyne] is one option, but in the end they decide,” Guardiola added. “I like it when players gave the initiative to do it.
“We didn’t score against Spurs in the Champions League last season, this season against Spurs we miss a penalty; in these kinds of games, it’s a big difference.
“I like the mentality, I like Sergio taking the ball and wanting to take it. Practice, be positive, one idea, shoot and score a goal.”
