Manchester City defender Nathan Ake claims his coach Pep Guardiola’s demanding approach has brought the best in him.


Ake insists the Spanish offer exactly what players want in his tactical way. The Dutchman, who is in his debut season, has seen injury reduce his playtimeplaytime. However, he claims the former Munich coach is the perfect choice for him.

Guardiola is well-known for his intensity and Ake admits the fact that his demands are constant.

“It is intense but in a good way,” Ake admitted.

“Pep is always on your case. And when he is on the pitch he is trying to make the team better and get the little details right. Very tactical, but he also gives you the freedom to play what you see and be free on the ball, but in his tactical way,” the Dutchman explained.

“On the pitch, he is a genius and always trying to help the team. It is intense but I think every footballer likes that, to learn and to be able to train under him,” he continued.

Also, Ake highlights that Pep has only enhanced his mentality as he already has the same attitude as the Catalan.

“I think that I already had the intensity and the willingness to do well and to win trophies. But the difference is big, and it is a big jump,” Nathan highlighted.

“Straight away when you come into this environment, you get the feel and need of winning games,” he added. “Every week you are here you get that more and more and that is how you develop and learn that winning mentality.”

He revealed “So, to come here and play under this manager is great for me and I always wanted that.

“You learn so much on the ball and off the ball. The way the team play is great for me and I am still learning even when I am getting older.”
