Pep Guadiola will face Sporting in the Champions League, a challenge which will be played in Lisbon, where the Manchester City team is the favorite to emerge victorious from this duel, although in football we are used to surprises.
City will be without Jack Grealish, Cole Palmer and Gabriel Jesus for the first leg against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League, due to injury, but Guardiola remains confident of continuity.
“Winning or losing is random, I never know what will happen in the future. But in the period when we are together we try to defeat the opponents with smiles and good humor, because when you have bad faces, it is impossible. When that happens, the rest is not important. We can not control the results. “Nobody knows what will happen, not even me”, the Spanish technician initially emphasized.
Guardiola is in his sixth year at City, who has managed to do well, while this season it looks like he will take the Premier League trophy into his own hands. he is developing a very successful season so far.
The 50-year-old has since led City to three Premier League titles, the FA Cup, four consecutive League Cups and the Champions League final last season.
“I will not be like Sir Alex Ferguson, do not worry. The harmony in this team is now extraordinary, thanks to the captains. We know each other perfectly and accept the good and the bad,” Guardiola concludes.
