Manchester City players’ attitudes are perfect – Pep Guardiola.
“Don’t ask me about the attitude of these guys, if you still doubt what they have done, this group of players winning seven titles in the last eight competitions we’ve played in,” said the City boss.
“The way we’ve played and our personality, there’s no doubt about that – the reaction we had after missing the penalty against an incredibly good team.
“I’m so pleased for the victory and the way we played.”
“He asked me to be substituted, but he is not injured. He did not feel. We cannot forget that four or five months injured, you have to run a lot with Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho, Harvey Barnes – they are so fast. It was quite different against West Ham. But he is OK.”
Pep also spoke about Raheem Sterling’s injury.
“I think so. He is getting better. This kind of injury is a little bit dangerous. He feels really well, but the doctor says two or three weeks.
“So we take a risk, in this game against Madrid, and in the second leg we want him to be able to play.”
Guardiola then joked: “Today we are 19 points off the title, maybe we have a little chance! I don’t know? No, we don’t have any chance to win the Premier League, so it’s better to take a risk when we have to do it. It’s important for us he is able because he is a special player for many reasons.”
“Well, next time we will score! Of course it is a problem. We miss against Tottenham, Atalanta, but what I want, I told them, the next person to take a penalty be convinced he will score.
“It’s not normal for the quality we have, next one we are going to score, and the taker just be convinced, to say: I am going to score. That is what I said.”
