Man United's Chris Smalling: 'We don't care about Pep Guardiola going to City'

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling says that he and his teammates "don't care" that Pep Guardiola has agreed to take charge at Manchester City.

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has claimed that he and his teammates "don't care" that Pep Guardiola will take charge of their local rivals Manchester City in the summer.

Guardiola, who is currently regarded as the world's best manager because of his 19-trophy haul at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, has agreed a three-year deal with City.

At one point, the Spaniard, who will leave Bayern at the end of the season, was linked with United but it was the Red Devils' enemies that secured his signature.

"We don't care really, in that whoever is managing City, or coming and going, it doesn't really affect us," Smalling told Sky Sports News.

"City are always going to have a top manager, as are we, so it doesn't affect us too much. It's good to see that the best players and the best coaches want to work in England, so I welcome that."

At the moment, United are six points behind City in the Premier League table.
