On the eve of the Champions League game against Copenhagen, Josep Guardiola warned his players. After the great success against Manchester United (6: 3), the Manchester City coach sees a relaxation of his team with concern.
Guardiola sent a message to his players in the face of the media.
Manchester City are in good shape. With a run of six wins in seven games, the Mancúnian club emerged brilliantly from a derby against Manchester United (6-3) and confidently went into the next Champions League game against Copenhagen on Wednesday (9:00 p.m.). A little too confident?
It is perhaps an excess of confidence that Josep Guardiola has seen in the ranks of his side over the past two days following the spate of compliments that have flown after that huge Mancunian derby win. In any case, the Citizens coach seemed to warn his team at a press conference this Tuesday.
Guardiola don’t really like all those compliments
There have been too many compliments in the last two days and I don’t really like it before a game as important as the C1. I spent last night and this morning watching Copenhagen a little more and it’s a very well organized team, we have to be careful and come back to reality and work hard to win this important game. warned the Catalan very flatteringly about a Danish side holding FC Sville (0-0).
After analyzing his opponent’s game, Guardiola was surprised by the quality and the courage this team for play forward . Watching them this morning I was amazed at how many things they do well. We’re not going to win because we’re City and they’re Copenhagen, or because we’re beating Manchester United when they’ve just changed managers. We will win if we do our job he added.
If successful, a big step towards 8
Before this 3rd day of the C1, Manchester City (6 points) dominates Group G ahead of Borussia Dortmund (3 points), Copenhagen (1 point) and FC Sville (1 point). The Skyblues would take a big step towards the knockout stages if they win at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night. That’s why Guardiola insisted his team must do it solo performance in a meeting that is perhaps less exciting on paper for its players.
A win tomorrow would give Manchester City a little more peace of mind before tackling a busy schedule. The Citizens meet Copenhagen during Day 4 of the Champions League on October 11 before moving to places Liverpool (16 October) and Arsenal (19 October) in the league, then host a surprise outfit from Brighton , 4th in the rankings, October 22nd. So it’s the right time to take some pressure off in C1.
