Pep Guardiola: Man City

Pep Guardiola believes Man City made a statement with their win over PSG in the Champions League while Mauricio Pochettino denied speculation about his future unsettled them. Goals from Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus assured City of top spot in the group after Kylian Mbappe had put the visitors ahead. This is the ninth successive time that Man City has qualified for the knockout stages. They narrowly missed out in the final last season when Chelsea beat them 1-0 in the showpiece.

“Of course. PSG – what a team, what players, what can I say? We tried to keep these players far away from our goal. When they are close to your goal they can do anything.” Man City manager Pep Guardiola said. “Except for five minutes after we conceded, when they [went for the] knockout on the counter-attack but couldn’t finish, we made a really top performance. We are happy to be in the next stage. Congratulations to everyone in the club. It’s many years of being there. Now we will focus on the Premier League and try to arrive in February in the best condition possible to go to the quarter-finals.”

“We know each other quite well and they know what they have to do,” he added. “They are smart enough. Oleks has not played this position much but plays there for Ukraine. We played really well and the way we are performing is really good. People enjoy watching us and we are enjoying playing. Hopefully, we can sustain this as long as possible.”
