Claudio Bravo: 'Alexis Sanchez bitter over failed Manchester City move'

Posted September 14, 2017

City goalkeeper Bravo, who was unexpectedly called into action today when Ederson was hurt, knows Bravo better than most and said after today's match, "He went from happiness to bitterness in a few hours, although it's all in the past now".

"When we started to speak with Arsenal in the last days [of the transfer window], because before it was not possible, they wanted to make a swap with Raz [Sterling]", Guardiola said.

City were heavily linked with a move for the Chile worldwide during the transfer window, with reports suggesting that Sterling could have been used to help snare Sanchez, something Guardiola was quick to rule out.

City will return to Arsenal in January and bid around £20m for Alexis Sanchez - whose contract is set to expire at the end of this season. We would have loved to have him here, but the market gives you these time limits and the rush is not good.

"Of course we were interested (but) at the end Arsenal decided not to sell him".

Mane was shown a red card after his first half clash with the City first choice keeper Ederson and had to be replaced by Bravo.

And, despite having little to do against the ten men of Liverpool, he insisted it is hard for a goalkeeper to adjust in those circumstance.

He said, "These things are avoidable".

"I don't know what's going to happen in the meantime".

"I wouldn't have wanted to play for a reason like this, an injury to a teammate, but you always have to be prepared".

"You go from being on the bench watching the game and within seconds you're out there playing".

"I am so happy with the decision the Premier League have taken".
