Pep Guardiola spoke this morning and nearly all the questions pertained the super league creat6ion. Pep was animated and it felt like he could speak for hours on the matter. He did not shyy from it and spoke honestly.
Let’s dive in-
“It’s an honour to speak first for City,” he joked. “I’m a good spokesman. We (managers) talk six times a week, we are asked about the NHS, COVID etc, we can say how we feel”
“We are not the right people to answer the questions. The presidents can speak more clearly about where football is going to go. It is uncomfortable for us because we don’t have all the information,”
“I can give you my opinion, but no more. That is the reality. I would love the president of the committee to go out around the world and explain how we got this decision. I support my club… I love to be part of this club.
“But I also have my opinion but right now it is just a statement. That is why it is uncomfortable for the managers. We don’t have all the information.”
“They told me they would release the statement and it is still there but nobody speaks clearly about what it is going to do/create and we are still in this position.”
“Every club defends its position. Don’t be cynical. Everyone makes their own interests. When you talk about the Premier League and UEFA, they look after their interests. UEFA have also failed. They have to communicate, be in touch.”
“It’s not sport when there is no relation between effort and success, it’s not sport. It’s not sport if it doesn’t matter if you lose. I’ve said many times I want the best competition as possible. It’s not fair if teams fight at the top and cannot qualify.’
Those were the more pertinent quotes as Pep is clear and honest with his remarks.
