Dias believes that he and Pep share the same winning mentality. He said, “To have the opportunity to join a club like Manchester City is fantastic for me and one I couldn’t turn down. Their success speaks for itself. They have been the dominant team in England over the last few years, playing an attacking brand of football which I feel suits my own game.”

Also, he praised Pep, “It is really exciting to be part of such a talented squad and to play for a world-class manager like Pep Guardiola, who has a proven track record of developing young players like myself. I believe I can improve here, at a club whose ambitions match my own and I will give everything to be successful and win titles.”

Moreover, he was confident in his ability, “I am a player that loves to win, a player for the team, for the fans, a player that loves this family spirit which I’ve felt a lot since I have been here. I am an aggressive player and I love what I do. I love the game and without getting into too much detail, because it is something you will see when I start playing, the most important thing to say is I love to win and that is the thing you most need to know about me.”
