Manchester City train at Dragon Park – What the world's media said

Pep Guardiola's men were the perfect guests



Premier League leaders Manchester City spent three days with us at Dragon Park last week – and the world’s media didn’t miss it.

From the moment manager Pep Guardiola revealed details of his team’s visit around their back-to-back matches in Swansea last week, the interest was massive.



Guardiola said in his press conference: "We play Wednesday and Saturday.

"We play at night on the Wednesday. We are going to finish late, if we come back here on the Thursday for regeneration and then on the Friday morning, we have to come back again.

"I would prefer to be there for the regeneration because this week is so important for us.

“We have two Premier League away games. We have a crucial game in the Champions League in Glasgow, I want us to have a good regeneration, and train well, prepare as well as possible for our two games in Swansea, for our game in the Champions League and for Tottenham away.

“Everybody will travel down."

Here are just some of the kind words the global, national and regional media said about our facilities last week.
