Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has come out to say that he is encouraged by his players getting angry on the pitch. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he believes staying hungry will be key to retaining the Champions League this season, so he expects his players to not look happy when things are not going right on the pitch.
Pep added that it is important for none of his players to ever feel relaxed on the field until the job is done.
His words, “The manager can go on TikTok and repeat motivation but it doesn’t work. Every player has to be moved and feel that,”
“It belongs to them, I knew at half-time I should come to the players because they were angry. I said ‘Why are you angry, you’re losing 1-0 but performing well. Be clinical upfront and you’d be 3-1 up?’ We push them, they have an incredible mentality, to never give up.”
“The important thing is that the players don’t feel relaxed. If the board are relaxed, good, they don’t score goals. For our club to win the Champions League is something incredible. How many teams have won one Champions League. In perspective we didn’t do anything special, just one. For us the club didn’t have it, to be part of that is proud.”
