Pep wants Sterling to improve on his possession and ball control


Pep Guardiola wants Raheem Sterling to work on his playing style.

Guardiola is also worried about building his team ahead of their trip to Watford.

Manchester City are decimating every opponent on their way to clinching another Premier League title with each and every player performing well this season. Raheem Sterling has been one of the standout stars for the Citizens so far and has been a menace for the opposition defence in every fixture he has played in so far.

Manager Pep Guardiola, however, is of the opinion that the Englishman has grounds to improve on. He has said that the player can be more consistent when it comes to keeping ball possession and also with his ball control. The Manchester City manager said, “He can do better.” He added, “We are so delighted with what he has done over the past three years. But he can be more consistent in possession and with his control.”

The Premier League winner was speaking to the media at a press conference ahead of his side’s clash against Watford, whom they will take on in the midweek fixture. He lamented about the fact that he is still unsure who will be available for the trip to Vicarage Road given injuries to a number of his players including the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan.

The City manager said, “We have training this afternoon, so I can’t tell you the answer now. Kevin De Bruyne is not ready. The other two I don’t know right now.”

Guardiola also said that he has complete trust on his players and will listen to them regarding their fitness issues and prepare well for the long season ahead. He said, “There are a lot of games. Whatever we do, we do in right moments. Every situation is different.”
