Meeting the Media!

Today would be my first meeting with the media in Britain, things had changed a lot since I was in England last and I was told of what to expect, and how I would be expected to interact with the media a lot and answer all of their questions.

“Welcome back to England and Manchester City Georgi, are you happy to be back?”

“Thank you very much and yes I am delighted the board has put their faith in me to drive this Club forward. To follow in Roberto Mancini’s footsteps is going to be tough but I’m up for it and I know the players are!”

“You mention Roberto there, is there added pressure on you to succeed following last season? Especially with the budget you have available.”

“I’d say pressure is part of the job and I am prepared for it, Manchester City is a great club and its time for us to rise above the rest of the competition, especially a certain Club in Trafford”

*quiet laughing in the room*

“The fans will love that Georgi, how do you think they will react to you being back?”

“The fans here are the best in the World, they have stuck with this Club with thick and thin, to average 30,000 a week in Division 2 is unbelievable so they deserve all the success and you could see that in May. I hope they will be as welcoming as they were in the 90’s and they’ll enjoy the attacking football I intend on playing”

“What’s your opinion on your squad and backroom staff? Do you know the ones you want and who will be leaving?”

“I believe we have the best squad in the league and I intend on adding a couple of players to the squad, but I’m not sure about who will be leaving, we’ll just have to see. Some players need first team football so could be loaned out but again it depends on the deal. As for the staff, Brian Kidd is a great assistant, success has followed him so I’ll sit down with him and I’m hoping he stays.”

“Thank you for answering our questions today Mr Kinkladze, one last one…Will Manchester City be lifting the title again come May?”

“You’re welcome and I look forward to speaking to you all through the season….and yes of course we will, we are the best team in England!”

The story is doing brilliant so far! You are doing well for a first-time writer, keep it up.

P.S. There will be times when your story never have comments. Just keep going, because there will always be at least one or two readers per day that don't leave comments ;)
Cheers mate :)

Ok thats fine, was worried no-one was reading lol

I'm well ahead with my story but dont want to post it all at the same time, next update within the hour anyway!
Pre-season Training Camp and Friendlies

The board had already arranged a 10 day training camp in the USA, so I could take a squad of 40 out there to improve fitness and prepare for the new season.
Our pre-season friendlies would be a few less than I’d like but we also have the occasion of the Community Shield at Villa Park against Chelsea, the week before the start of the season so that will be taken very seriously by myself and the squad and we hope to add to the silverware with another Cup.

First Signing Is Completed

Georgi Kinkladze today completed his first signing as Manchester City manager by agreeing a £700,000 deal to sign Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel. The 40 year old American goalkeeper moves to City as he nears the end of his career and has claimed he is looking forward to the challenge of trying to claim the starting place currently held by England’s number one, Joe Hart.

Many Expect Friedel to just be a back up to Hart but he still thinks he can challenge Hart for the number one shirt. “I’m here to play football, Joe is a very talented goalkeeper but I still have a lot to offer and will keep him on his toes.” His new manager Kinkladze wouldn’t give too much away as to who his number one would be, “To have two keepers of Joe and Brad’s standard is what every manager dreams of, Brad is obviously coming to the end of his career but he has shown that he is a top keeper, and of course, Joe is the best in the League.”

Kinkladze also confirmed that Swedish Striker John Guidetti would be heading to QPR on a season-long loan deal. QPR are set to pay over £200k a month for the deal and Kinkladze sees this as the perfect opportunity for him to prove he can do it in the Premier League.
I signed Gomes instead mate, what wage is Friedel on?
Think its about 45-50k a week mate, just wanted him for a year or maybe 2, cant see him challenging Hart, although from his performance in one of my friendly games i might not be sticking to that!
I played Gomes in an FA Cup match and he didn't keep a clean sheet. We were playing Bradford.

BBC Exclusive Interview with Manchester City Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak

BBC Sport has been granted special access to interview the man trusted by Sheikh Mansour to lead Manchester City into the future, Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak. The BBC’s chief football writer Phil McNulty was invited into one of the executive boxes at the Etihad Stadium where he would meet City’s main man and see what the future holds for the Club and for their new manager Georgi Kinkladze.

“Thank you for agreeing to this interview Mr Al Mubarak, it is a pleasure to meet you”

“It is no problem, I am always happy to discuss the Club and the future.”

“Let’s get started then, winning the FA Cup was huge 2 years ago but surely winning the League, and in the way you did it, was even more special? Did this happen a lot sooner than you expected?”

“To win the league with the last kick was special, one of the best moments in Sport and the fans deserved it. Before Sheikh Mansour bought the Club we looked into the history and saw how the fans were so passionate and we knew this was the Club for us. As for a timeline, we never really set one, we knew success would come with the money we spent but we also knew it would take time but we were lucky to have a manager like Roberto Mancini. His experience and the way he handled some tough situations won us the title.”

“Roberto Mancini did a great job, were you sad to see him go? And what do you think to your knew manager, is he the answer to going on to gain European success and further success in the Premier League?”

“Of course I was upset when Roberto came to me to tell me the news but I understood his reasoning and we parted on very good terms, I hope to see him back in management soon and definitely back at the Etihad. As for Gio, he is a great man. He has his own vision on football and what he wants, in his interview he set out a plan to us and you could see his passion and love for City. He even knew the players he wanted and we hope to be able to give them to him.”

“So we can expect to see City’s spending continue under Kinkladze? Any names you want to mention, we hear a lot about Daniele De Rossi from sources”

*Khaldoon laughs* “Our spending will continue but only for the right players and for the ones the manager wants to see at the Club. As for Daniele, he is a Roma player but we’d be silly not to be interested in such a great player but we will see what happens. Gio has already got one of his guys in Brad and he has a few other targets, but we might need to sell a couple first before they come in.”

“And one last question, the Club going forward, is the Etihad your home for a while now? What are your targets for the next few seasons in terms of success?”

“The Etihad is our home and we will be staying, expansion of the Stadium is an option and will be looked at soon I hope, us playing here does a lot for East Manchester and Manchester City Council so we are happy to stay. The big question, the future….we hope to build, there definitely is no intentions for a 44 year wait for another title so that is good and we hope to begin to compete properly in Europe soon as well but it will take time.”

“Thank you for the interview Mr Al Mubarak, it has been a pleasure meeting you today and good luck with your plans”

A backup keeper for 45-50k per week? You could have gotten Craig Gordon on a free and he would only request 20k a week at most :P
But..."We're Man City, We'll Spend What We Want" haha :P
