Pep Guardiola skipped England’s big derby between Manchester United and Liverpool to watch in Catalonia as one of his Manchester City’s subsidiary teams claimed their first win of the season in Spain’s La Liga.
Girona beat Getafe 3-1 at home and Pep was in the box alongside City chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak and sporting director Ferran Soriano.
The satellite system of the club from Manchester also includes this team to the “family”, as well as the American New York City, for example.
Valentin Castejanos came from him to Girona this summer, and the 23-year-old Argentine was a goal sensation behind Oceana. And scored again in the first home run of the season (the third goal), to the delight of Pep, Soriano and Mubarak.
Casteyanos is a likely new signing for Manchester City in 12 months’ time.
In England they were supposedly going to investigate the satellite club system built by the Sheikhs of Abu Dhabi, but so far there is no news that this has happened.
And this system includes Girona, Palermo (Italy), Troyes (France), Lomel (Belgium), Montevideo City, Melbourne City, New York City, Yokohama (Japan), Sichuan (China)…
In general – hundreds of players play to be eventually picked up by Pep in the “mother ship” of the entire system.
