According to Gael Clichy, the Sky Blues (Manchester City) can form two high quality league sides with the personnel that they have got.
The Premier League Champions, who are one of the wealthiest football clubs not only in England, but, in whole world, have been making their squad stronger and stronger every summer.
This time around also, they have signed the likes of Bacary Sagna, Eliaquim Mangala and a few more and they seem to be well on course as far as the defence of their league crown is concerned.
They had a couple of rather comfortable victories to start with. Their last weekend’s win i.e. a 3-1 thumping of the previous season’s runners up Liverpool was a sign of their strength. They are looking heavyweights to say the least.
Speaking about the City squad the other day, Clichy said, “Incredible is the word that I would like to use. We have got so much of quality in the squad that it’s possible for us to form two top league level sides.”
When asked what he thinks about City’s performance in the first two games, the left back said, “It has been alright. We are only going to get better. Currently, we have been having a few fitness issues as well. Once we have all our players available, we will be more clinical.”
A tough little period is awaiting City as they are scheduled to face Chelsea and Arsenal in successive weeks in September.
They also have to play against the German club Bayern Munich in the European Cup.
Clichy reckons that fitness is very important for his team considering the hectic schedule.
In the words of the Frenchman, “To stay fit both physically and mentally is a necessity in football. Of course, skills matter, but, fitness is as much important.”
