World News – GB – Man City new boy Ruben Dias has yet to fully benefit from Pep Guardiola’s training


Ruben Dias has admitted that this season’s hectic schedule has given him little time to take full advantage of Pep Guardiola’s coaching, but he feels good settling in Manchester City

Dias joined Benfica on September 29 and made his Leeds debut days later before the international break brought him back to Portugal

The 23-year-old has impressed in his second City appearance against Arsenal this weekend and is certain to start Wednesday night’s Champions League game against Porto

“Obviously I haven’t been here for long, but every day is a new opportunity,” said Dias “We didn’t have a lot of time to train, it’s more playing, resting, s ‘train and play again, but of course you can start to feel the influence of the manager and the influence of the players and that has been good

« I’m really happy to be here and to have the opportunity to play in (Champions League) It was obviously one of the reasons I came here Because of the way the club play to win, especially in this competition, I can’t wait to be there « 

City were frustrated at being knocked out by Lyon in last season’s competition quarter-finals in August, but are once again among the favorites to win the European Cup this time around

« Manchester City are part of a big group of the best teams that can win, » said Dias « Some are close, some are a little further away but every year starts from zero

« It’s a new year and new players are entering the team. We will do a re-set with all the things that have been done so far and we will try to keep improving more and more »

The Lyon defeat still annoys City, and Pep Guardiola admitted on Tuesday that he « still feels responsible » for the disappointment it caused

Frustration could now turn into fuel as they launch a new assault on the competition most desired by the club hierarchy

« It’s amazing to be in this competition », said Guardiola « It’s only the first game, then there will be the second and we’ll see how far and how much we can think »

« Every game is important because every game has three points, but you can’t deny that when you play the first game away it is not the same as if the first game was at home » , did he declare
