Roque Santa Cruz is a 34 year old Paraguayan footballer who is currently performing for Olimpia Asuncion but his playing career is very comprehensive as he has worn the jersey of many clubs from around the world including: Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Blackburn Rovers, Malaga, Betis, Cruz Azul and his current club Olimpia Asuncion.
The experienced attacker knows what it takes to perform in different leagues and clubs, Santa Cruz has recently voiced his thoughts concerning Pep Guardiola as the Spanish manager has the task of pushing Manchester City to the Premier League title as well as various other pieces of silverware.
Pep Guardiola is expected to do a good job in Manchester City; he has already won every top club competition back when in charge of Barcelona. The Premier League is a very different breed of league compared to those where he has participated in before as the English League is not a competition where only 2 or 3 clubs have a realistic chance to actually win, this League has much more competitors and obstacles before any club can emerge as champions but Santa Cruz is confident that Guardiola will make it happen.
The 34 year old Paraguayan attacker of Olimpia Asuncion, Roque Santa Cruz said: “I think City like to play good football. They have some great players. I think they will value Guardiola’s playing philosophy a lot. They’ll keep evolving even more and they’ll be even more competitive with him. I think we may see Manchester City playing much better football.”
“As a group they are a very solid team, that’s their strength.”
Santa Cruz spent around 4 years performing as a player of Manchester City and he knows a thing or two about that league and that team, he is certain that Pep Guardiola will transform Manchester City into a new squad, a squad that might be capable of winning the biggest competitions in the world of football.
