“We will do our best to play in the way we have been playing for years. Reaching the final marks the end of the process we started five years ago. I think it will be a wonderful game and the better will win. I know exactly how we will play and who we will play with. “It is an amazing experience to be here. When I started my career, I couldn’t even expect to reach the finals. I know the players, I know what I want to do. tell them. Some of them are nervous, but I will explain to them that this is normal,” he began.
Tension is particularly prominent in penalty kicks. The reporter asked Pep Guardiola if the Manchester City players had ever coached them, and Guardiola replied that it was impossible to be fully prepared for this kind of result.
“We can train penalties as we wish, but we can’t replicate the tension in a penalty kick. If it’s a penalty kick, I will talk to the players. I know what to tell them, but the first thing I think about is a few weeks of matches. , Not a penalty.”
Guardiola firmly believes that his team will suffer.
“Everyone wants to win, but to win, you must play well. You always have a game plan, but sometimes you have to adapt to different situations. Some players are full of pressure on the court, some people encounter difficulties, but they He said: “We are happy to tell the players to’come out and enjoy’, but this is not always possible. You must be strong and ready to adapt. “
“We suffered losses in the first half against Paris Saint-Germain and Dortmund, but we are still united. It is certain that tomorrow a team will not rule all 90 minutes, but we will have a chance to stand with us Here, we must use them. I am the happiest person in the world, because I am here, which is a privilege. We will do our best and try to present football in the best way.”
At the beginning of the season, he extended his contract with Manchester City and is now tied for 2023. He sees no reason to leave, and believes that he cannot ask for more than what he currently has.
“The owners provided everything I needed. I can’t deny their investment, but I am not saying that. I have friends on the board, and the players consider me to be the authority because I have the support above me. I am. I feel very comfortable with my colleagues, I have everything I want, I can’t ask for more, and I’m within my power. When we lose, they don’t blame me, but try to find a solution. I know As a coach, I may be fired after-but we will break up with a good relationship, which is why I renewed the contract. I am very satisfied with the structure of the entire club, not just the players. They will follow The result will judge me, but no matter what, we will lend a helping hand and maintain a friendship,” He said.
His most difficult task will be to comfort players who do not play games.
“Uh, that’s too bad. It’s disastrous. I suggest you never be a coach. I don’t know how to comfort players who won’t participate in the game, but I suggest that they stay in the team. We will have five Name, maybe six other substitutions, so everyone can get a chance. Sorry for those who won’t play, but that’s the truth. I will choose the team I think will win.
