Manchester City in talks to extend club captain Vincent Kompany’s contract

You have to take a look at all big clubs in Europe at how many young players there are in their first teams.

"We saw with the last two games, his problem is that he can only play in one of them [Kompany was in the line-up against Liverpool last week but then sat out the FA Cup win over Rotherham]".

The 19-year-old follows fellow teenager Jadon Sancho away from the Etihad Stadium, with the forward having thrived at Borussia Dortmund by starring in their brilliant first half of the Bundesliga season to earn England caps.

Asked if he was disappointed to lose Diaz, Guardiola said on Tuesday: "No".

Three minutes to the interval, City made it two after Phil Foden managed to get enough possession following deceiving instincts to steer well underneath Marek Rodak in the opposing goal. I never did [request long grass against Liverpool].

Agut needed just one match point to secure victory and will play either Tomas Berdych or Marco Cecchinato in Saturday´s final. With the quality of tennis displayed against Novak Djokovic , Roberto will be the favorite going into the finals.

As quoted by BBC Sport. he continued: "I don't want people who don't want to stay here, to be with us and try to achieve what we want to achieve".

The repercussions from last Thursday's Premier League match of the season are still being felt almost a week on. Phil made a decision to stay. Hopefully, in the last part of the season he is able to help us because we need him.

"Winning is important, we can not deny it, we are here in the semi-finals and it's one step to go back to Wembley, that's why we take it seriously in that game once we are here", he said.

His solution? A second league where young players face "real teams" in a competitive environment. Today the guys who are 16, 17, 18, 19 years old, to be in a position with 40 games in the first team is so hard. You get your games in the cup and any time a young lad gets an opportunity you've got to shine and show the manager - that's what I'm trying to do. So some players have patience and trust with the club and what we want to do, some they don't. This is what we have done. Against Rotherham, for example, we played with nine players who didn't play against Liverpool and the nine were a good selection.
