I can already feel Guardiola's influence, says City's summer signing Dias

Manchester City summer signing Ruben Dias says the frantic schedule this season has given him little time to get the full benefit of Pep Guardiola's coaching. 

Dias signed for City from Benfica on September 29th and says he feels he is settling in well at the Etihad Stadium. The 23-year-old impressed during his second appearance for the Citizens against Arsenal at the weekend and is certain to start Wednesday night's Champions League match against Porto.

It has been a busy start to life in Manchester but one Dias is enjoying. 

"Obviously I've not been here for a long time but every day is a new opportunity," Dias said.

"We haven't had much time to train, it's more playing, rest, training and playing again but of course you can start feeling the influence of the manager and the influence of the players and it's been good. 

"I'm really happy to be here and to have the opportunity to play in (the Champions League). It was obviously one of the reasons I came here. Because of the way the club plays to win, especially in this competition, I'm looking forward to it."
