Julian Alvarez insists that he can help Manchester City with his versatility after they were beaten 3-1 by Liverpool in the Community Shield.
The 22-year-old, who moved from River Plate to the Etihad in January but was loaned back to the Argentina club, featured in the match that took place at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, and he had an immediate impact when he came off the bench in the second half, cancelling out Trent Alexander-Arnold’s brilliant opener in the first half.
Alvarez played both off the right and through the middle with Haaland at the King Power Stadium, however, City went on to lose 3-1 following goals from Mohamed Salah and Liverpool’s new signing Darwin Nunez.
Following the loss, Alvarez said he can help Pep Guardiola with “different solutions” if needs be.

“Obviously, I’m very happy for scoring my first goal with City, but that stays aside because it wasn’t the result we wanted to start the season winning the trophy,” Alvarez told City TV.
“Always I try to give my best in training, I’ve shown I can play different positions at my clubs and with the national team.
“I can offer alternatives to the team with this versatility, I can offer different solutions and I want to give my best to help the team.
“It’s tough, obviously we didn’t want to start this way. We don’t like to lose. We need to keep working."
