David Villa has backed his ex-coach Pep Guardiola to “change the situation” at Manchester City.
The Premier League club now is on fifth place in the table and 10 points behind leaders Chelsea.
“He has a difficult period right now but I believe he will change the situation,” Villa told Sky Sports News.
“It is normal to have a difficult period with the team, but he is great and I think he has a methodology and he has a very good coaching staff to change the situation and the future at City will be better for sure.
“Football is difficult in every country and I am so lucky that I was able to play for Guardiola. He is a great coach, for everyone who likes this game. But it is difficult to win and he has almost always won. His statistics are amazing.”
