The hunger and drive of the Manchester City squad fuels them on their quest for more trophies. It is a key part of Pep Guardiola’s squad’s make-up and could be a crucial factor during the second half of the season.
Throughout Pep Guardiola’s reign at Manchester City, the hunger of the City manager has spread to his players. They haven’t been satisfied with winning one or two trophies their hunger and drive have seen them become one of the most dominant sides in the Premier League era. With City having won 5 of the last 6 Premier League titles it speaks volumes of the drive within the Manchester City squad. The treble winners also appear determined to attempt to defend the treble they won last season. It would have been no surprise if their levels had dropped on the back of last season’s success.
But there has been no such drop-off with Manchester City again contending on three fronts. Speaking with mancity.com Kevin De Bruyne explained that City are hungry for more success. He said: “The team pushes each other to win games and win trophies – that’s the standard. When everybody is on that level – physically and mentally – the talent is there. If you work hard, we will win more games than we lose. Obviously, we’re not done yet and we need to do more and win more games. It’s about winning the next game. There’s no point thinking about winning titles or trebles.”
The hunger and drive of Pep Guardiola and the Manchester City squad has already taken them to dizzying heights. They all appear determined to repeat that success this season. It is a vital ingredient on top of their tremendous talent which fuels the Manchester City squad.
