Man City cruises to rout of Rotherham

As the English game begins to earn itself a reputation for letting its best talent leave without properly offering up decent first team opportunities, Guardiola said managers needed to have "more courage" in their younger players. Some players have patience, some don't.

Earlier this season, in October, a young Gillingham team, made up mainly of players from the under-17s and 18s, played matches against Bournemouth and Southampton at Dean Court. We have games every three or four days.

De Bruyne was a key player in the side that won the title last term, but injuries have restricted him to six league appearances resulting in City being nine points worse off than they were at the same stage last season.

City's Under-21 side face Rochdale in the third round of EFL Trophy on Tuesday, with the competition allowing Premier League youngsters to face off against lower-league opposition in competitive action. "He played an incredible game, created a lot of chances and he has the vision to see what other people can not see".

Goal line technology is also being used, a week after the Gills had a goal ruled out against Southend United which they felt had crossed the line. They are important players but the only one who made a decision to stay was Phil. It's better conditions for both teams - when this happens, you do the best for opponents.

"I never speak with the many issues do I have in my head to think about the pitch? We wish him all the best because he's a nice guy".

"Congratulations to the academy and the club for working so well, because important teams in Europe want our players".

"Look at David Silva; he had to go on loan to become member of the first team [early in his career as he went to Eibar and Celta Vigo]".

"There are many clubs in the world, not just Manchester City and people decide. Once we are here, we are going to try". This is what we have done.

"We spoke with him yesterday to play 65-70 minutes, full intensity, and to do everything that is good for his rhythm", Guardiola told a news conference.
