Those were Kun's words to describe his feelings for starting this new era in Manchester City, under the leadership of Pep Guardiola. Sergio's post hit social networks after arriving to China, where he joined the rest of the team for pre-season work. "Very happy to be reunited with my team-mates and with very high hopes for this new beginning", stated Kun shortly after his arrival to China. Sergio immediately took part of practice, where he met Pep as his manager for the first time. Among other activities, he also joined the team in a tour of the Great Wall.
