Manchester City chief Pep Guardiola feels that it is important that the club finds ways to better facilitate their home support.
The Citizens have allegedly been holding workshops to improve the “match day experience” of passionate fans, who fill the Etihad Stadium to capacity whenever the Premier League side is playing, and Pep has reportedly reiterated the same to Chief Executive Officer Ferran Soriano, and asked that the matter be given utmost priority.
The Spaniard is said to be unhappy with fans leaving matches early due to inadequate facilities, which have at times forced supporters to leave early in order to beat the mad rush for the tram back to the city centre. Some fan lobby groups have suggested that rail seating be introduced to better meet the ever-changing demands of football matches.
Pep recently admitted that he has fallen before expectations in England, but the tactician’s concern with the English side indirectly shows that he intends to invest himself into the club for the foreseeable future, and recreate, or even surpass the success he has had in other top-tier clubs.
