Pep Guardiola is not to blame for Manchester City’s Champions League final defeat, Kyle Walker has said. He recently revealed that the PL champions simply needed to do more to win the European prize.
According to him, people can say whatever they want about Pep, but the truth is that they are only slamming the coach because things didn’t go according to the plan.
He added that when Guardiola gets it right, nobody says anything, but critics are always quick to point fingers when he gets it wrong.
His words, “Listen, people can talk. I’ve seen a few things or my mates have text me about tactics, personnel, this, that and the other.”
“It’s a game of football, it’s 95 minutes and anything can happen. Obviously, we wanted the result to go our way but the manager, or whoever, he picks who he feels can go and get the result and what’s best for the club.”
“When he gets it right nobody says anything and when he gets it wrong – or when they think he’s got it wrong – people are questioning things.”
“I think it’s a little bit unfair sometimes when as soon as Manchester City don’t win then it’s tactics or maybe players on the pitch, but we needed to do more and it’s as simple as that.”
“I don’t think we created enough in the game and I don’t think I’m speaking out of turn by saying that, I think everyone could tell on the pitch.”
“I think with the squad we’ve got, with the manager we’ve got, with the club that we’re playing for, we should be going and winning the Champions League, we all know that.”
“We all know that the players, at least since I’ve been there, have been signed to go and get it.”
