‘Winner’ Pep’s Experience Helps City In Title Race, Says Danilo
Manchester City full-back Danilo says that Pep Guardiola will be his team’s biggest asset in the title run-in. City now lead Liverpool by 1 point at the top following their 2-0 win over Everton on Wednesday.
Liverpool were 7 points clear just a couple of weeks ago, but have stumbled to draws against Leicester and West Ham recently. Danilo says Guardiola’s experience- having won league titles in Spain, Germany and England- is crucial.
“Pep for example is a winner," he told Sky Sports. “He won a lot of titles with his previous teams so that helps us every day, every game. Every situation is completely different even for him but his experience can help us.
"You have to play your game and play for another result. Sometimes you play before or after [your title opponents] and you have to try and put in the same performance every game. If you stay calm and keep focused then you can win the title. It is much better to be on top.”
