Ex Chelsea and Manchester city player Frank Lamard feels manager Pep Guardiola demands much from his players.
The Spaniard who had successes with FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich is presently fighting for a top four finish.
The 38-year-Old believes Guardiola must have learned from his first season in England and will be better in the coming season.
He told talkSport: “I’m sure Pep Guardiola has learned more this year, than in any other year of his management.
“At Barcelona, he had a great team – who were already playing the same style – but he enhanced it. [And at] Bayern Munich, he took on the same. Manchester City obviously have greatplayers – and they’ve added great players – but he demands a lot from his players.
“There’s a real intelligence factor. Every player needs to know how to move position, change position, play in different positions – and I think he’s asked a lot from them this year, and I think that might be the one thing he’ll look at this year: did I ask too much from this group?”
