Pep Guardiola spoke to Sky Sports and had many things to say. From the title race, Caraboa Cup and injuries to COVID absences and Kevin De Bruyne’s contract. There is much to discuss.

Let’s dive in-

“We have a desire to play good and get to another final!”

“I’m pretty sure he (De Bruyne) will stay, I’m not worried!”

“I think the big teams are going to drop less points...”

“We don’t have many players. To play one/two games is okay but if sustained for a long time - and you can use just 14/15 players - it will be more difficult. But like everyone in the world, we have to adjust in our lives and our profession as much as possible...”

“We don’t have an alternative. The important thing is the guys who have Covid recover well and the others try to avoid it as much as possible.”

“Gabriel and Ferran have Covid, Raheem can play striker but I prefer him wider. We don’t have much alternative. Sergio is still not completely fit. We found, of course, Bernardo can play there. The next game, maybe another situation...”

Pep is sure in his squad and so should the fans. Tomorrow’s match v Manchester United in the Caraboa Cup is a huge one as Pep looks to accumulate more trophies. This is the way.
