This Saturday, Manchester City host Leeds United in a new confrontation between Josep Guardiola and Marcelo Bielsa. Both coaches have shown their respect for each other and Pep acknowledged his amazement at the words of the Loco.
“Guardiola is a magical man”, were the statements of the former coach of La Roja in the previous match, to which the Spaniard pointed out: “EI am overwhelmed, I feel weird, he is a great competitor, I will try not to be weak after those words because he can do whatever he wants, I am overwhelmed, I don’t know if it is because he is the most honest person“.
“When I have the opportunity to speak to him, I am sure that what he says is what he believes. He does not say or do anything for the media or for the repercussions. That’s why I’m overwhelmed, because everyone knows the respect and admiration, the way it helped me in my early days and it will always be in my heart, that’s why I always say ‘wow’. I feel that I do not deserve it because a person who can search or decipher the secrets of what you are going to do or how you are going to play, is him“added an excited Pep at a press conference.
Guardiola went further and stated that “people say he hasn’t won titles, give him Manchester City and he will win them. Players always improve with it. That means the coach is good“.
Finally, the City manager spoke about the match against the Bielsa team: “Because of his work ethic, his knowledge of the game, I know how tough it is going to be, but luckily we are prepared to compete, because in addition to this, we are three games away from being champions and tomorrow we have another opportunity to take a big step“.
