when he faced the media two days before 

Manchester City

's opening game of the Premier League against Spurs.

I answered this last time. He's a player for Tottenham. I made an exception last time - usually I don't talk about transfers because it is not my business. That's all

."

Guardiola went on to explain the role of No. 9 in his team

The City manager said:

"I would say we play with recognised strikers. Sergio [Aguero] was injured [last season] and played a few games. Always when Sergio was fit he was an important part of the team

.

"He was incredibly recognised by me. He was a proper striker and Gabriel [Jesus] is a proper striker."

Guardiola added of Jesus: "

Always his mind was in the right place. Gabriel is an incredible, important player for us, can play as a striker or wider. He had an incredibly key role in these many years of success in every season

."

Guardiola told

Kevin De Bruyne

has not returned to full training but is recovering from an ankle sprain.

The Spaniard said:

"He is getting better [De Bruyne]. Every day he is getting better. But we are still waiting. He can't do a full training session. Some with us, some alone. We will see in the next few days
