Philippe Sandler: Guardiola has a plan

This week Dutch news outlet VI have spoken to Philippe Sandler about his impending Man City move.

The youngster has revealed that Pep Guardiola has been constructing a plan for him.

Philippe Sandler has opened up about his Man City move as follows:

A player from PEC usually does not transfer to the top of the English league. Yet it is true. 

There are experts who think I am going to enjoy it and there are people who think I can not handle it. It’s up to me now. 

What else should I have done? Let this opportunity go away?

Pep Guardiola wants to work with young talent in the coming years. He wants to buy less polished players to train them himself.

I can work with the best trainer in the world. That is a boy’s dream.

My management and I spoke extensively with people from City, including Txiki Bergiristain.

They really knew everything about me! They were impressed by my distribution between the lines and my speed. 

They saw that I got better and better in challenges, but I also mentioned that I had problems with space in the back. 

The video analysts had watched almost all of my matches. That gave a good feeling.

 I’m not just a number, they really have a plan with me. Guardiola too. 

When I was in hospital for my medical examination, my father spoke to him. He knew exactly who I was.
