Pep Guardiola wants Champions League spot for Pablo Zabaleta, fans can help

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has admitted his players were confused on whether to attack or defend their lead as they held on to a 2-1 win against Leicester City on Saturday.

"This season has been tough for us, something went wrong but at the end we still have a chance to go into the Champions League and I'm sure we can improve next season", Fernandinho told British media.

Swansea City took a big step towards safety after goals from Fernando Llorente and Kyle Naughton secured a 2-0 win at Sunderland that moved them four points clear of the bottom three.

Manchester City said in a statement: "Pablo Zabaleta will leave City at the end of the season, bringing the curtain down on an incredible nine-year association with the Blues".

As well as two titles, the 32-year-old has won two League Cups and the FA Cup, while he helped City reach last season's Champions League semifinal. We play for a lot of important things, so they have to come to support us more than ever and to express the gratitude to one of the most important players in the whole history of Manchester City. "He leaves behind many happy memories".

His brother Rafael said Valdez had not indicated whether he had been working on any particular investigation lately. The cartel is believed to be responsible for an estimated 25% of all illegal drugs that enter the USA via Mexico.

"Still, I'm pleased with the way we went around it in the second half".

"I'm very grateful [for the man-of-the-match recognition]". Of the current City players, only Joe Hart and captain Vincent Kompany have been there longer.

So, for the moment, it's only Zabaleta who can really bid City farewell.

"There is much more optimism that the club hasn't had since I've been here and people want to feel that and be part of it".

Guardiola said: "Nine years here - to replace that you need a guy that stays nine years here".

Syrian Opposition Group Slams Russian Proposed De-Escalation Deal

He's an exceptional professional and someone who has been extremely reliable.

"I believe when the team plays well we have the right individual talent to win".

Toure can still control games, and that's what Guardiola has seen since restoring him to the line-up in November.

Since Zabaleta's arrival from Espanyol, City has come out of the shadow of cross-town rival Manchester United, to the extent that it regularly finishes ahead of United in the English Premier League.

Both opponents are safe in mid-table, and Guardiola's top-four rival Arsene Wenger said on Monday "some teams are on holiday", but the City boss is not anticipating an easy ride against visitors who have gone nearly two months without a win.

Meanwhile, West Brom boss Pulis has defended Guardiola following a trophyless first season in England for the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager.
