Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he is excited to "learn a lot" from Chelsea's new head coach Maurizio Sarri this season.

Chelsea hired Sarri to succeed Antonio Conte after he fell out of favour with the club's hierarchy, and the former Napoli boss has an opportunity to win his first silverware as Blues boss in Sunday's Community Shield against City.

Guardiola heaped praise on Sarri last season when his side met Napoli in the group stages of the Champions League and has now backed the 59-year-old to revolutionize the English game.
