KHALDOON AL MUBARAK believes that ‘relentless’ Pep Guardiola can take Manchester City to even GREATER heights.
The champions smashed a host of Premier League records and reached 100 points on the final day of the season.

But the Etihad chairman says there is no chance of the manager taking his foot off the pedal now.
Khaldoon said: “We have a manager in Pep who is relentless. There is not going to be any content or relaxation here, that I can assure you.
“This is a young squad. Many of our most talented players are under the age of 26.
“My expectation, and the manager’s expectation, is that this team will continue to improve.

“We’ve worked very hard over the last couple of years to build the squad, not just only for this season but for many seasons to come.”
Owner Sheikh Mansour is willing to back his manager in the transfer market with a couple of new faces this summer.

But Khaldoon and Guardiola are both convinced this young City squad will improve — and that could spell bad news for their Premier League rivals.
City have fallen way short in their previous two attempts to defend the title but will hope this time can be different.
