Julián Álvarez has held a press conference with City after his competitive debut against Liverpool in the community shield this past Saturday.
Julian spoke of the style of play saying he found it easy to adapt as it is the same way River Plate plays as well.
“Manchester City has been playing a certain way for a long time. I try to do what I’ve been doing with River, but with some changes. It’s a team that presses like we did in River. It’s a little easier for me [in that respect]. I feel comfortable playing this way,” he said.
Julian further stated that he was pleased with preseason and he’s getting to know his teammates better and says he’ll continue to train hard.
He added: “I’m going to continue training to the fullest to be available. I was very happy to play against Club America and Bayern and have the opportunity, to start with City. I will do my best to live up to the expectations. Pre-season was good.
“Every day I’m training with my teammates, with Pep and his assistants, getting to know them better. As always, I train the best I can. It is the first time I am with Pep on the pitch, so I do my best to show my qualities and help my teammates.”
Julian also expressed how excited and flattered he was by Sergio Aguero saying nice things about him.
“He [Aguero] helped me a lot. Saying those things about me is an honour. It makes me want to kick on,” Alvarez on Kun Aguero.
“I grew up watching Kun. Also watching so many Argentinian players: Kun, either in Europe or in the national team; Higuaín; Messi. So many Argentinian players…”
It is without any doubts that Julian is excited to be a part of the City set up and wants to get started already.
