Breaking News ! Pep Guardiola has warned against comparing new signing Ruben Dias with club legend Vincent Kompany. The arrival of Dias, a club-record signing this summer, ended a two year search for a high-profile central defensive signing after Kompany left the club after a glorious 11-year spell. With Nathan Ake also signing, City finally appeared to have solidified their defensive options. In his first two appearances, Dias has been impressive, and he kept his first clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday. Guardiola praised his new signing for his role in that win, where he was relatively quiet but made some important blocks and interceptions to preserve City's lead. And naturally, given the high-profile nature of Dias' signing, Guardiola was asked after the Arsenal win whether he can be a replacement to Kompany. "It would be a big mistake to compare him to Vincent," Guardiola replied.

. Both guys defend, Nathan and Ruben they don't make mistakes and we suffer a lot the last season so especially the last season we suffer a lot from the mistakes we have done. "We have to improve but I feel they are real defenders, so now I have to help them to do the buildup and create the spaces where we want to play but today in a difficult game he was there." In his short time at City, Dias has spent more time away with Portugal than at the CFA, but Guardiola says he is already on his way to being a leader at the back. He continued: "The most important thing for Ruben is he is a leader. In a short time he will lead the team, the pressure, just 23 years old. "We cannot forget he is the central defender for Portugal and when this happens he is something special. We are delighted so far with what he has seen."
