Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola says that new reinforcements to his squad aren’t necessarily needed after suffering 1-0 defeat to Southampton on Sunday, July 5.

The defeat against Southampton was Manchester City’s 9th defeat of the season in the Premier League.

After the game, when Guardiola was asked if City’s defeat was a question of needing new players, he told reporters: “No, I don’t think so.

“I think we play good, honestly. We play with the character and desire to drive until the end. We played against Southampton who had 10 players in the penalty area. We did it really well.

“We will review the game, and with the chances that we had, we can do more. It’s difficult to create more chances than we created and the way we did it.

“I’m so proud, so I liked the way we played but it’s not enough. There’s no complaint about the players. We played really well, I like it but it’s not enough to win the games.”
