"It's another culture. At the beginning you look at your team mates, how they do things".
The sight of Rooney pulling on the blue jersey again at Goodison Park felt right.
"We didn't have full-backs and you have to buy full-backs", the Spaniard added. Even Chelsea and Manchester United cannot call on half of City's attacking options and if it clicks then no-one will be able to lay a finger on them. As a subplot, the African contingent in England will be hoping to grab the headlines this term.
"You just hope for the opportunity".
West Ham: All of West Ham's summer signings are available but there will be no Manuel Lanzini, Michail Antonio, Andy Carroll or Cheikhou Kouyate, while Diafra Sakho is also set to be absent.
The FanSided soccer staff make their picks ahead of the first weekend of the Premier League season, which kicks off Friday.
Take the first game for example. "I think it is the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers", Mourinho said.
"We needed to do that because it was one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League, and we need to change it. We were not able with those players to find a solution".
FanSided's soccer staff will be competing in a weekly picks league all season.
The manager confirmed that the Manchester club is in talks to re-sign striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is recovering from a knee ligament injury. Of the three, only the Swedish defender failed to impress in pre-season.
"I understand the reality of the market, the numbers and my club by doing 75 per cent of what I asked, the club did well".
Yet perhaps the key signing is Nemanja Matic, a central figure when Chelsea won the league under Mourinho. "We are going to see at the end of the season what happens, knowing how difficult it is".
Guardiola's reported desire to bring Alexis Sanchez to the Etihad Stadium and his previously reserved praise of Aguero means the Argentina star's future at City remains a matter of intrigue. Romelu Lukaku should bring goals, which were a particular issue against lesser sides: United drew 10 home matches last season, at least eight of which it could be said to have dominated.
Players IN: Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Kyle Walker, Danilo, Benjamin Mendy.
Jose Mourinho is open to agreeing a swap deal with Tottenham for Danny Rose. "I want to have 100 more moments like that in my career", Lookman said.
Away fans' pubs: Around the ground is all City and not really advisable.
It would not be a surprise to see Bilic bite the dust first in the managerial sack race.
