Guardiola hails Dias-Laporte as his first choice for Man centre-back

Mon 02 November 2020 | 4:50

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has suggested that Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte will be best partners in centre-back combination

Since Manchester City has been criticized because of their defensive weaknesses, Guardiola added Dias to their ranks from Benfica this summer in order to increase their quality and depth in central defense. Dias has played in six games arriving at the Etihad Stadium, in which the Man City have accepted only three goals.

Guardiola claimed following City's success against Sheffield United that both

and Aymeric Laporte defended really well. He insisted “These guys give us consistency. We struggled a lot last season without two central defenders. "Of course, we will need everyone because of the amount of games. It's impossible to play both every game." It can be said that the arrival of the Portugal international has boosted the Citizens' defense and Guardiola seems to think the Portugal star is the proper solution to his problems.
