Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has come out to admit that be wasn’t proud of his unrecognisable team at the start of the season. He recently revealed that he considers himself a spectator and a manager, so he wasn’t proud of how his team was playing at the time.
According to him, even when he lost in Barcelona and Bayern Munich, he still recognized his team, but that was not the case with City before the recent string of victories.
He added that there is no guarantee to win games, but he’ll always want to be proud of what his players are doing on the pitch.
His words, “It was not just that specific West Brom game. It was the last games before West Brom,”
“Always I am a spectator – I am a manager but a spectator. I want to enjoy, I want to see my team playing the way the team must play, and I didn’t watch it for a long, long time.”
“I lost in Barcelona, I lost in Munich, but always I recognise my team, and in that period, I could not recognise it, I didn’t like it.”
“Sometimes we have one or two days to reflect, I talked with my backroom staff, we discussed many things and talked about the process of what to do.”
“I said ‘guys, we did it here in England, we did it in Germany and Spain as well, so we just come back to our principles, do what we have to do and try to do it again’.”
“There’s no guarantee to win games but at least we’ll be proud, we’ll recognise what we want to be, the way we want to live, and after, it’s one game, another win, the confidence rises, the trust rises and that helps us to be in the position we are.”
