Manchester City manager, Pep has defended the club for spending £57m to sign Athletic Bilbao defender, Aymeric Laporte.

Laporte’s arrival takes City’s spending on defenders since the end of last season to £190m.

Guardiola told English reporters: “I understand the criticism but we have spent £300m on six players. Others have done it on two. We had a lot of older players out of contract. To compete we needed to spend.

“A club can decide to spend on two players. We did it in a different way. We understand the inflation of the market.

“We have spend on six players and others have done it in one or two. We accept criticism but more important it that they play well.”
