Riyad Mahrez 'pleased' with start to life at Manchester City

Hart included in Man City's pre-season tour of the US

"I know it's not easy for him".

So far the tentative interest in Hart - who has 75 England caps, but was left out of the World Cup squad - has come from overseas clubs. "At the same time, I'm realistic about what's gone on and what the people who count think of me and I have to change those opinions".

"We will try and find a solution".

During the encounter, Mahrez who joined Pep Guardiola's side in a club-record deal this summer came close to scoring an equaliser for his new team but saw his deflected free-kick parried by Marwin Hitz.

Speaking after the match, Guardiola told reporters: "Despite the decision [not to renew Hart's contract] nobody can doubt Joe's quality as a goalkeeper or what he has done in the last 10 to 12 years". "English football has signed an exceptional player".

"We tried, but at the end all my advice for the players is that they have to go where they want to go".




"It would have been a mistake for him if he came and he wanted to go to Chelsea with Maurizio Sarri. It was already done", said Guardiola.

"It is a pleasure to work with them", said the City boss. In City's Premier League opener against Arsenal on August 12, those positions will be taken by Kyle Walker and Fernandinho.

Alex Zinchenko, who is set to leave the club before the start of the English domestic season, brought down the lively Pulisic in the box and Gotze beat Bravo from the spot before Alexander Isak nearly made it two soon after. He also notes how good a player he is. In a Guardiola team, when defences are often constantly stretched, that adds another dimension and explains why the Catalan returned for his player after missing out in the January transfer window when the Foxes were quoting a £95 million price tag.

Mario Goetze scored a first-half penalty for the German side in the International Champions Cup clash.

He was not in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Benjamin GARRE from Argentina made his debut for Manchester City in a 1-0 pre-season friendly loss to Borussia Dortmund.
