Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola announced that his side would praise Liverpool for their Premier League win. City’s ongoing 2-1 misfortune at Chelsea meant they could no longer catch Liverpool at the top of the table, finishing the Red’s 30-year wait for a league title.
There were proposals for City to send an honorary guard to Liverpool when the different sides meet on Thursday, yet city leaders expected to talk with the Premier League to choose if it is appropriate to do as such in the current condition. Following those talks (via Sky Sports News), Guardiola has affirmed that the celebration will at present take place.
Guardiola said. “Obviously we will do the ceremonial group. We are always getting Liverpool when they come unimaginably to our home. We can not complain and we will do it, obviously, because we merit it.”
Nonetheless, he warned Liverpool they despite everything have far to go before they match the sort of residential dominance that Guardiola has delighted in since arriving in England in 2016.
“A team that has won eight titles (trophies) in the last three years is passionate about each and every game, each challenge, all over the place,” he began.
“Nobody can claim that in this nation. It’s so hard to do what we did in the world’s toughest league yet you can’t win all the time. There was one exceptional team, and I say learn from them when one team is exceptional and I congratulate them on that. This is straightforward. The zeal and ambition of this squad go and goes and it goes again.”
Guardiola finally moved his concentration towards the finish of the campaign. They booked their semi-final spot in the FA Cup thanks to a 2-0 win over Newcastle and the supervisor trusts that triumphant the opposition will assist them with preparing for a Champions League clash with Real Madrid.
He said: “We are pleased to be back in London at Wembley after the misfortune against Chelsea to play against Arsenal in the semi-final to reach the FA Cup final. It’s an unforgettable achievement, and it gives us an extra lift. We talked about what happened in the Premier League to qualify for the Champions League we need two additional victories. So we have two tournaments that we will win. Today we have taken the primary move. It will be ideal to arrive in the best shape against Real Madrid. Winning this title will be the ideal way to prepare for Madrid.”
