The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are eager for a few of their young players to get a chance this season. Things are going very well in the Premier League at the Etihad, with the Sky Blues currently leading the charge at the top of the table, but their success with youth development isn’t following suit at present.
For all of his qualities, Pep Guardiola often struggles to place much focus on developing homegrown talent, and that has proven more difficult at Man City than at any other club. With seemingly limitless spending power, and increasingly short managerial tenures, bosses at Man City are tasked with short-term success rather than long-term success, and that unfortunately negatively impacts upon the young players.
That said, Guardiola has, on occasion, given chances in less important games, and with the return of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, Man City’s game against Wolves is a good opportunity to do just that. A few of Man City’s senior players need a rest, whilst their youngster stars are desperate for a chance.
With that said, Guardiola should give these 2 Man City young players a chance against Wolves tonight – agreed?
