Manchester City got their title defence off to the worst possible start with an opening day loss to Tottenham Hotspur. With a lot of Manchester City transfer news ding the rounds, Gary Neville believes that they need a striker like Harry Kane. The striker announced last season that he would like to leave the club in a bid to win some silverware. Man City are short in that department with Sergio Aguero leaving for Barcelona after the end of his contract.
“I don’t think Man City have been the type of club that would react off the back of one defeat, but it’s three now [Champions League final, Community Shield and Premier League] and they need a striker.” Gary Neville said. “Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres are forwards, and I know that’s the way the game is going in terms of flexible forwards, like Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. They move around and City has got Raheem Sterling, Jesus, Riyad Mahrez and other players that move across the front line.”
“But I think they need a point, they need something, because in games like on Sunday, Kane could have been the difference. He would have taken a chance, played it forward more, he would have demanded that they play quicker, he might have got his head on a cross.” he added. “The thing for me with Man City is when they’re not playing at their best, they start slowing the game down and walking with it. I don’t get why that is. I get that you may not run as hard, but when you’re on the ball, you can still be sharp and move the ball away.”
