Guardiola makes the buzz, the strange statement


By: Manu Tournoux

The Manchester City manager made some very strong comments before the Champions League round of 16 second leg against Copenhagen this Wednesday (9 p.m.).

I would have preferred a 7-0…“. Used to praising his opponents, Pep Guardiola did not make modest falsehoods at a press conference before entering the second round against FC Copenhagen in the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League. After a 3-1 success in Denmark, this return match looks like a formality for City.

If Pep Guardiola does not seem overly worried, the Manchester City manager seems much more concerned about the future. “ The level of the Champions League is increasing, it is becoming harder and harder. With Barça, every year, when I arrived, I had the feeling that we were in the semi-finals at least, before it even started. Now it’s so hard to reach the semi-finals. The teams are better. The coaches too. Everything is harder than when I was a player or a coach, when I started“.

Manchester City, a title stronger than with Barcelona?

In the end, the best teams pass, continued Pep Guardiola. When you play two matches well, you have more chances. A bigger accomplishment to win it now than with Barcelona? I won’t say that, otherwise it would lower the titles with Barcelona, ​​they wouldn’t appreciate it. I don’t want to say that this title was bigger than the ones I won before. Every moment is special. And I always find it difficult to get through to the end. We don’t take anything for granted. Nothing is simple. »

A statement that should not leave Barça members indifferent. Pep Guardiola left an indelible mark in Catalonia.
