telling ทางเข้า ufabet : “I know [Gael] Clichy said Mbappe “Pape will be successful at City but it won’t be easy if he moves to City.”

“It sounds strange. But I don’t think Mbappe is suitable for City because they are too disciplined. We talk about City’s style of play, which doesn’t allow many solo players. With all the passing, it’s not suitable for players who want to beat defenders.”

“They pass the ball and are always moving. (Bernardo) Silva and (Jack) Grealish both have the ability to play as a number 10, but that has been destroyed by (Pep) Guardiola’s philosophy. 

“He always wants his players to ready, receive the ball, show their speed, play with the ball, get it back and play one-twos.” 

“Mbappe can’t do that. He uses the ball to make a difference. The other players would look at him in confusion because he shouldn’t have done that! His confidence will drop if he doesn’t start too well. He is a top player. But not a Manchester City player.”
