Pep Guardiola admitted he was anxious about some of the strong tackles in Manchester City's first game of preseason, a 1-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup.

City tried to sign the Italy midfielder from Napoli but he opted for a move to Chelsea.

"I am not disappointed", said Guardiola. 'If the days before they are exhausted and they don't want to fight for the Community Shield, play at Arsenal, then stay on holidays.

"So it is important that English football has received an exceptional player and at the end if they want to come, it's better they come", he added. If they want to come, that's great but if he wants to go to Chelsea, all the best for him.

Hart has returned back to Pep Guardiola's side after a season-long loan at West Ham United.

With just 12 months left to run on his contract, City have to decide whether to sell him now or risk losing him for free next summer.

Department of Justice (DoJ) issued a formal charge sheet against twelve Russian nationals with committing federal crimes. He called on the special counsel to "end this pursuit of the president and say President Trump is completely innocent".

Despite being told again he is surplus to requirements at City, Hart is away on their pre-season tour of the USA and played in last night's 1-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

"Joe is our player".

Mahrez and Brahim Díaz showed some good link up play as the second half went on, but the Citizens lacked the killer edge even with the introduction of Leroy Sane with 20 minutes remaining.

Guardiola said: "What happened last season was a outcome of the work we did two seasons ago".

Guardiola said his team played well despite not having a lot of time to train together.

"What happened last season was a outcome of the previous season and we will try to come back to the basics and make a good season". It was a pleasure to work with them, to do what we've done in the last two seasons, it was like the first day we came.
