‘We didn’t play our best match, of course,’ he told CityTV. ‘But we lost because of our mistakes, and we can learn from that and not repeat it again in the next matches.
‘I don’t know if people trust us or not, but we are a team. We are always a team, when we win and when we lose. You’re going to see the best version of Manchester City.
